Idea Factory: Virtual race across Africa

This month, the Rotary Club of Denver Southeast, Colorado, is holding its virtual “Race Across Africa,” with participants exercising at home to see how fast they can cover the length of the Nile River — 4,132 miles.

Participants can also earn “Nile miles” for every U.S. dollar they raise. The race supports water and sanitation projects in Africa, as well as other service projects sponsored by Rotary clubs around the world.

This year’s race benefits two projects: installing a clean, reliable water system in a rural hospital in Mugonero, Rwanda, and providing water and sanitation facilities for families in the slum of Kibera, outside Nairobi, Kenya.
