100 Million Reasons to work together for girls
The 2017 Plan International Children Races is taking place on Saturday, 25 November 2017 at Ethiopian Youth Sport Academy.
The slogan for this year’s event is ‘100 Million Reasons to work together for girls’.
Since 2008 Plan International has been supporting the Children Races to promote social messages such as ‘Learn without Fear, ‘I’m a girl child, do not make me a child mother’ and ’Let’s create a world where all girls can learn, lead, decide and thrive.’
The race will be staged on the eve of the International 10km; the races comprise three competitions for boys and girls categorized by age (under 5, 8 & 11).
Disability competitions in 4 groups such as visual, intellectual, physical and hearing will also be part of the competition.
A total of 3,500 children are expected to participate.
Registration is now open at the Great Ethiopian Run Office & Hilton Addis Ababa starting from October 16, 2017.
We encourage schools to facilitate students to register in their schools through their sport teachers and collect the race packs from the race office.
