We have been raving about the Accra International Marathon that took place in Accra, Ghana last Sunday. And you know by now that Eights & Weights and Fit4Life partnered to sponsor two ladies to run in the half marathon. Well, I have great news! The ladies we sponsored to run in the race, Elizabeth Azuure and Rosina Titi of the High Morale Academy in Ghana, came first and second in the half marathon in the female group!
I am so excited for them because they win a cash prize, and would not have been able to afford to enter the race otherwise. It shows that if we give kids an opportunity to get involved in sports and get physically active from a young age, they can blow our minds.
If you do have the opportunity to help kids get involved in physical activity, please do! Check out aimghana.com for details about the race and how to get involved in the future. Next year's race will be on 28th September, 2014.
Cheers Eights & Weights!
