Let’s Run!

To celebrate International Women’s Day, a 5K fun run was organized in Kathmandu on March 5, 2016. It was a well-organized event with marked routes, volunteers standing at every corner to give direction or help cross the streets, and plenty of water at the fueling stations. Once the finish line was crossed, participants were also given plenty of snacks (bananas, homemade cookies, and water) to replenish their energy. The event ended with a guest appearance from our famous Mira Rai, international trail runner, and a little bit of Zumba to stretch those tired muscles.

Hats off to organizers (CCNN, Higher Ground Nepal, Women LEAD Nepal, and Ujyalo Foundation) for organizing such a successful event.
