About Pamoza 5K

We’re looking for 25 runners/walkers to participate in our annual 5K on Sunday morning, October 6, 2019 at Fairmount Park in Philadelphia.

The event features a professional pre-race warm-up & stretch, live DJ, medals and awards, Pamoza event gear, and just an amazing time with friends, family, neighbors, and other charitable individuals like yourself.

Come cheer on our participants or join us by registering to run or walk. As a participant, you have to commit to raising a minimum of $200 to support Pamoza's programs. There is also a $25 registration fee, which covers t-shirts, snacks, medals, and other event costs. You will be provided with an online fundraising platform, support from our team, and tips for successfully running/walking a 5K. Most important, you will be supporting our wonderful work in Malawi, Africa.

The ideal participant is someone who:

  • Loves Pamoza's mission
  • Is not afraid to ask people for support
  • Enjoys physical activity, and
  • Follows through on commitments

Last year, we had 25 participants raise $18,000! It was a great event and we set a high bar for 2019. Please help us exceed our goal this year!

Event will take place rain or shine. We look forward to seeing you there!

Why Participate?

"If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together." That is our motto at Pamoza International. It is based on an African proverb that has been around for many years and it is still true today.

Pamoza means "together". We work together with the people we serve, and together with people like you, to help transform the lives in Malawi, Africa. We are more powerful when we work together. That's why we want you on our team. We know that in order to serve more people, we need more support and we can't get more support without you. So we hope you will join us in transforming lives through the #pamoza5k.
