Why We Run

The Leading Edge Take Heart (LETH) 5K is an annual event held in Lakeland, FL that makes a global impact in the lives of orphans and widows in rural Kenya. This year, the majority of funds raised will go directly to the Primary School Campus project that will impact hundreds of children in the Oyuma Village community in rural Kenya. Runners and walkers alike can make a difference together by participating in this family community event around Lake Hollingsworth on Sept. 24th!
