AHIF 2019 Charity Run

Bench Events is proud to organise a Charity Run at our Africa Hotel Investment Forum on 25 September 2019 in Addis Ababa, in support of local charity AHOPE Ethiopia. AHOPE was established in 2004 in response to the grave plights of HIV positive orphans. It provides specialized care and support to HIV positive children through various programmes:

1. Residential care and support for destitute HIV positive orphans.
2. Preservation and Economic Empowerment of families caring for HIV positive orphans.
3. Community outreach through educational sponsorship, skills training and library service.

Bench Events’ charitable committee and AHIF charity sponsor Derba Midroc have pledged to make a donation to AHOPE Ethiopia on behalf of each participating runner. AHOPE will also be present throughout the event with a stand in our Exhibition hall, to raise awareness about their work.

The run will be hosted by none other than Ethiopian Olympic gold medallist and four-time World Championship title holder Haile Gebrselassie.
