THE ANNUAL KENYA MARATHON DINNER WELCOMING ELITE MARATHON RUNNERS FROM KENYA & SPECIAL GUEST MAMA SARAH OBAMA & THE S.O.W.O (SAFEGUARD ORPHANS & WIDOWS) FOUNDATION
CHICAGO, ILLINOIS – The Kenya Marathon Dinner Group in collaboration with various partner organizations will host the 17th Annual Kenya Marathon Dinner on Oct 9th 2015 at Hilton Hotel - Continental Ballroom, 720 South Michigan Avenue, Chicago, Illinois.
The Kenya Marathon Dinner is a great opportunity for those of us who love marathons to fellowship with the Kenyan runners who take part in the Chicago Marathon. Many of these athletes are the best of the best when it comes to the Marathon. They have won Olympic medals, The Boston Marathon, The Chicago Marathon and many other world class races over the years.
The purpose is to welcome them to Chicago and also hear their stories with an intention of encouraging the future generation of athletes. The Marathon dinner serves as a great cultural experience for the diverse audience that attends the event as guests enjoy various aspects of Kenyan culture including authentic Kenyan cuisine that expresses what these Kenyan athletes eat back home.
This year’s event will also see us award the 1st Annual Kenya Marathon Dinner Leadership Award for outstanding contribution to charitable causes to Mama Sarah Obama & The S.O.W.O (Safeguard Orphans & Widows) Foundation.
The Dinner is intended to honor these outstanding athletes and the contribution to charitable causes by Mama Sarah Obama & The S.O.W.O (Safeguard Orphans & Widows) Foundation. The event is open to the public.
