AIMing to Care... RUN or WALK to keep Africa Alive!—Here’s how:
Whether you are motivated
❧ by the loss of a loved one to a preventable disease, or
❧ you simply want to serve humanity in a meaningful way
❧ while increasing your own health and fitness,
our goal is to help you achieve your goals safely, enjoyably, and with lasting good results.
Alumni associations, religious and other charitable or social groups can AIM to raise funds to help keep Africa Alive!, while supporting their members to adopt and sustain a healthier lifestyle.
The AIM takes place in Ghana’s capital city on the last Sunday of every October and attracts participants from all over the world. There are events to suit almost every fitness level: a Full Marathon, a Half Marathon run/walk, a 4-person team relay, a 10K run/walk, or a 5K run/walk.

Our 2019 Charity Partners & Associates
The Longevity Project
The Community Health Education & Outreach Program (CHEOP) of The Longevity Project is designed to increase public awareness of health risks and preventive health measures through a series of free health screenings and presentations in deprived communities, worksites, places of worship, and other places easily accessible to the general public.

Wise Youth Foundation
To reduce the incidence of unwanted pregnancies and the attendant maternal and infant mortality amongst at-risk teens, we support impoverished young girls and boys to stay in school by providing them with books and other educational supplies, by tutoring them to improve their academic performance, and by leading them in appealing recreational activities that nurture them emotionally and psychologically.
We are raising funds to establish a safe and stable Community Resource Centre where we can increase youth awareness about adolescent sexual and reproductive health, including the dangers of unprotected sex, sexual violence against girls, unsafe abortions, and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).
