Description
During the summer months we all love to be outside. With family get-togethers, Bar-B-Ques and campfires, being together outside in the warm evening sun is the best time. Something we all do to get ready to be in the backyard or park is to spray ourselves with mosquito repellent. Families in countries like in Burkina Faso or the Congo don’t have access to repellent sprays or lotions. Some mosquitos bring deadly diseases like malaria or dengue fever. When you give a gift of a mosquito net, it ensures that all families have holistic health support.  
Globally, the World Health Organization estimates that in 2020, 241 million cases of malaria occurred, and 627,000 people died of malaria, most of them children in Africa. Because malaria causes illness and death, the disease is a great drain on many national economies. Since many countries with malaria are already among the poorer nations, the disease maintains a vicious cycle of disease and poverty.
In countries like Burkina Faso, a mosquito net can prevent people from contracting malaria and dengue fever. Through MCC, Habibou Diandé family in Burkina Faso will have access to a high-quality mosquito net to help prevent malaria and other mosquito-borne illnesses.  The 2022 Run 4 Relief will highlight the need for mosquito nets to keep all families healthy. 

For those of you who have younger children who want to support MCC or ‘yee of low commitment’ the 1K Fun Run is for you! This event will not be timed, and no awards will be given to those who finish first, middle or last. Everyone who participates in this event will receive a t-shirt.

Please remember to bring your water bottles. Let's reuse and recycle! Gatorade and water will be available at the run. 

The 1K and 5K Run will be starting at the Wayne County Event Center on Saturday, August 6th. The 1 K will start at 7:30 AM, followed by the 5K kicking off at 8:00 AM. Every participant will receive a t-shirt and the top 6 overall runners will receive an award. Age awards will also be given. Sign up today on this site. All proceeds will be given to MCC to purchase mosquito nets for families. Registration fees will be paid by the participant. 

So start your running soon and get in shape to run the Ohio MCC Run 4 Relief!
