Miles for Mothers @ Wherever you run, walk, bike or swim
May 18 all-day

Mali Health has partnered with Durham’s Racery to host a virtual race supporting mothers in Mali and celebrating mothers everywhere in the month of May.

It’s a virtual race: just do your normal exercise at home and add your miles to Racery’s online platform. Every time you record miles, you’ll make progress on your virtual route in Mali. You can race to the finish or go at your own pace – our race is open to everyone!

All proceeds will support mothers in Mali, in the very same communities you’re racing through. Your support will provide them with maternal and primary healthcare and empower them in community savings groups. You’ll do so much good for mothers – all with your regular workouts! Sign up today.
