How to Participate

Come to the circle Saturday, October 15th - check in starts at 7am. Pick-up your super cool Selamta Family 5K t-shirt.

At 8am we will walk a lap around the's almost like a regular 5K, minus the running and distance.

There will be Ethiopian coffee, snacks and cool Ethiopian goodies for you to check out or take home.

Plus, you'll learn more about our amazing Selamta Families and how YOU are a part of the solution for over 5 million orphaned and abandoned children.
