Kawelle, a Buffalo based non-profit organization serving and supplying distressed schools, students and teachers in Liberia and Kenya hosted its first “Ugly Sweater” 5k Run/Walk to raise funds for schools in Liberia and Kenya on Saturday, December 10th. The race started and finished on Glen Avenue near Glen Falls Park in Williamsville. 

     With a donation of $25 participants were able to participate in the 5k while wearing their ugliest holiday sweater. They also received a free hooded sweatshirt at the end of the race.  All profits from the sale of registration went toward helping with the mission of supplying schools in Liberia and Kenya with adequate school supplies. 

     With proper and adequate educational resources, a virtuous and thorough education can be provided in the efforts of escaping unrelenting poverty. For more information you can visit www.kawelle.org.
