There are several ways that supporters just like YOU are getting involved with this year's Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon. YOU can too, whether you live in the Cincinnati area, across the USA, or around the world.
SOTENI has been a Partner Charity with the Flying Pig Marathon for three years and we are making strides together. This weekend, May 4th & 5th, we have twenty-two walking or running for Team SOTENI - Kilometers for Kenya. Forty volunteers have come forward to work the weekend for SOTENI and the FPM. We truly appreciate each and every one of you and the sacrifices you have made for SOTENI.
We invite all participants, volunteers and supporters to stop by the SOTENI booth on the public landing, say hello and let us say asante sana (thank you very much).
Three of our Team SOTENI runners are doing the full marathon. They are Katie Mideli, Paul Odipo and John Wulsin. Paul arrived in the USA for the first time, just a little over two weeks ago, to be part of the Flying Pig and to raise the awareness of HIV/AIDS and its impact on the lives of people in his home country of Kenya. To hear Paul talk about why he is running in the marathon, click on this link and listen to the WKNU radio interview with Paul and SI Executive Director, Randie Marsh.
YOU can support Paul and ALL of the 22 participants by making a donation on our Team page. No amount is too small - every $26 ($1/mile in the full marathon) can make a difference in SOTENI's work. DONATE NOW. SOTENI believes it takes a village to prevent AIDS! Be part of our village through your contribution.
To make this weekend complete, we need YOU to come out and cheer on Sunday, May 5th for our runners, rain or shine. Of course, you may cheer where ever it is convenient for you, but we would like to have four basic cheer areas: 1) Gilbert Avenue & Eden Park Drive-6.5 mile 2) Erie Avenue & Paxton Avenue-11.5mile 3) Mariemont Square-16 mile 4) Eggelston & Pete Rose Way-as close to the finish line as possible. Come out and squeal with the rest of us! Make signs and bring a loud voice! Share with us where you will be cheering - 513-792-9932 or email@example.com. We would like all four areas covered. Check the FPM website for road closures and parking.
Sixty-two people have committed to being part of our village and making a difference in the fight against AIDS and its effects by being part of the weekend. Join us and YOU can make a difference. Sponsor Team SOTENI!
