Annual Kwanzaa Run to Benefit Rwanda Project

Community members are encouraged to come out this Sunday, Jan. 1, to participate in the annual Kwanzaa Run, held each year by the St. Thomas Association of Roadrunners (STAR).

The proceeds from this year’s race, along with any donations received, will go toward the Rwanda Project USVI, a local non-profit that gives V.I. students the opportunity to travel to Rwanda, learn about the culture, and get engaged in various community projects there. Approximately $5,000 must be raised for each student for the trip.

Organizers also hope the race will help to spread the word about the Rwanda Project to potential participants.

Sunday’s run will begin and end at the University of the Virgin Islands soccer field. Registration begins at 3:30 p.m. Entry fees are $3 for adults and $1 for youths under 18. Runners can chose to participate in either a two-mile run or walk, or a seven-kilometer (4.3 mile) run or walk.
