Due to budget cuts, not only is our elementary school short on books,
but those we have are no longer current. As a runner for Sankofa,
every dollar you raise helps us put new books on our library’s shelves.
Ready to run? Sign up here!
All Sankofa runners will receive a discount coupon to register with the
Oakland marathon and our Run for Sankofa wristband to wear during the race!
100% of the money we raise will go to buy books for our public elementary school library. We'll be cheering on runners from our water stop at 28th and Myrtle!
Up for the marathon – but only in spirit?
