US Ambassador Robert Godec yesterday became the first diplomat to confirm participation in next month’s First Lady Half Marathon in Nairobi.
The race in it’s third edition is aimed at creating awareness and raising funds for the Beyond Zero campaign which is meant to reduce maternal and child mortality.
“I will join the First Lady in the Beyond Zero Half Marathon. I am a big supporter of her efforts and she is truly a champion in her initiative and the US government and people are 100 percent behind her,” Godec said.
The US ambassador was speaking yesterday at Kamariny Stadium yesterday, where he joined London and Berlin Marathon winner Eliud Kipchoge, former Boston marathon champion Wesley Korir and Olympic champion Stephen Kiprotich in training.
