Run For Mukhanyo

A youth-planned run benefitting three great organizations

Run for Mukhanyo is an hour-long kids run held every year on Columbus Day (Oct 14, 2019). The race is planned and organized by the students of Veritas School in collaboration with the Live Red Foundation as a benefit for three great organizations. Each organization works to improve the lives of kids in local communities, from Richmond to South Africa.
