The Ware in the World 5k. I met these amazing clan when guided up Kilimanjaro by the father of the community.  And ran the Kilimanjaro marathon with them to complete my African continent in a pursuit to run a marathon on every continent. 

PROCEEDS from our races also help us help many in need, and in need of activity. Caren Ware Events Proceeds also go to Miss Pam's Ranch, a working ranch that teaches troubled youth to ride, do chores, build esteem,  and set goals. Miss Pam RUNS the ranch from a wheelchair.  This ranch is a perfect place for kids to experience connectivity with animals, learn agility and confidence, We refurbished a wheelchair with the Rodeo Run and gifted it to the ranch.  It broke right away.  We hope to buy more parts and batteries for it... or FIND another used one (anyone have any leads ?) that can be donated  to keep Miss Pam UP N RUNNING in spirit as we do so with our healthy legs!
