“Pocatello to Africa” 5K Fun Run/Walk to Raise Funds for African Sister City


The City of Pocatello African Sister Cities Subcommittee is asking you to put foot to pavement for friends half a world away.

Saturday, April 29 at 9 a.m., the subcommittee will be hosting the fifth edition of the “Pocatello to Africa” 5K Run/Walk.” The race helps to raise money for one of Pocatello’s sister cities, Kwaremenguel, Burkina Faso. This year, the run will help to fund the purchase of an ambulance for the city. Currently, the people who live in Kwaremenguel are over 50 miles from the nearest hospital.

The cost to participate is $15 per person. Teams of four people can register for $50.

The run is being organized with the help of students and staff at Wilcox Elementary. Students who participate in the race are allowed to count their steps during the run towards their total in Pocatello/Chubbuck School District #25’s “100 Step Challenge.”
