Why Run?

The FAAST Fun Run 5K is a race dedicated to promoting awareness and action. Together we can make a difference. Simple acts, such as purchasing fair trade food and gift items can make dramatic changes in the lives of people across the globe. The focus of this race is issues in Africa. Run for reason, and join the fight against poverty and inequality.
