On Saturday, November 16th, the United Methodist Church will be hosting their 3rd annual “Run or Walk from Malaria” event in efforts to reduce and eliminate victims of the disease.
Statistics show that a person dies from malaria somewhere in the world every 60 seconds even though malaria is a preventable disease.
Along with the efforts from the United Nations Foundation and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the donations and proceeds from the event will go to vaccinations for at-risk individuals.
Registration for the event is $25 a person and includes a T-Shirt. The event will begin promptly at 9am at the Albuquerque Academy and will cover approximately 5k of distance. Participants can run or walk the event.
