All proceeds from the race support the charity Shoe4Africa (, which works to use athletics on a community level to support widespread initiatives in education and health, with an emphasis of HIV/AIDS awareness. As part of these initiatives, Shoe4Africa collects new and used athletic shoes and distributes them in Africa at the popular Shoe4Africa community road races.

The 5K (3.1mi) "fun run" is open to all ages and abilities.  Participants receive a free race t-shirt, entry into a raffle prize drawing, and post-race refreshments!

If you have new or lightly used athletic shoes that youd like to donate to the cause, start looking for Run4Africa boxes around campus (e.g. at the gym, outside residential dining halls, etc.), and drop them off during the weeks leading up to the race, or at the race itself!

For more complete information, please go to run4africa.html.  You can also go directly to online registration:  Discounts are available for youth and students.  Register now to guarantee t-shirt sizes and availability!
