Staff Participate in the 19th Edition of Standard Chartered Nairobi Marathon
Thirty AFC staff members ran in the 19th Standard Chartered Nairobi Marathon on October 30th, 2022, at Uhuru Gardens, alongside over 20,000 other runners. The staff, led by the Managing Director Mr. George Kubai, competed in the 5km, 10km, and 21km races and received medals. The participation of AFC in the marathon is part of the Corporation's Corporate Social Responsibility. In addition, participants were given tree seedlings to plant as part of the initiatives to minimize the harmful effects of climate change and maintain our ecosystem. Since its inception in 2003, the Standard Chartered Nairobi Marathon has grown tremendously, earning recognition from World Athletics and the Association of International Marathons and Distance Races (AIMS). Over time, the marathon has attracted over 250,000 participants across 18 editions to become the largest single-day sporting event in Kenya. 19 years on, most importantly, the funds collected from the marathon continue to be channeled towards the Futuremakers initiative, which provides education, employment, and entrepreneurship opportunities for youth and women. To date, KShs 311 million has been allocated to Futuremakers programs, and over 24,000 beneficiaries have been impacted.
