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.
Mukhanyo Christian Academy
provides South African orphans in grades K-6 with education, meals, foster care, and social services, enabling these vulnerable children to create a future flled with hope: one that looks beyond daily survival to a joyful life of accomplishment and service. By providing South Africa’s youngest with a frst-class education – one that targets the mind, body, and soul – Mukhanyo Christian Academy seeks to cultivate a new generation of community leaders.

Youth Life Foundation of Richmond
is a non-profit organization based in Richmond which operates Learning Centers for children in at-risk communities in Richmond. These learning
centers seek to develop leaders by making long-term investments in the children from these communities. By supporting students academically, developing their character from a young age, raising expectations, and
investing in their lives through committed mentoring relationships, these youth will rise above their circumstances to become tomorrow’s leaders.
