Kesho & Kilifi Gold Triathlon 2014

by | Sep 6, 2014 | Uncategorized

There were many winners at the Kilifi Gold Triathlon again this year, not least, Kesho who were chosen as the recipient charity!  We’re planning to spend the proceeds to strengthen our programme of support for our university and college students – who are quickly approaching 100!  

It was a brilliant event with around 70 competitors and loads of community support to cheer us all on.  The course has to be one of the most beautiful in the country; a 750m swim in Kilifi Creek followed by a 20km cycle and a 5km run around Kilifi Sisal Plantation. 

Kesho was out there in full force with 6 secondary students participating in the team event and 2 Kesho Board Members completing the individual event.  We also had a Kesho stall with lots of Kesho children volunteering their support and selling snacks.  Kesho staff were really busy throughout as they were members of the organising committee and also doubled up as photographers!  One of the best moments was the performance by some of the primary children who sang and recited a poem called “Respect”. 

Evans, our new ED gave a great speech to thank the KGT organising committee for their tremendous work.   Already looking forward to next year….

Enjoy the photos…
