The Kenya Embassy in Paris and the Kenya Delegation to UNESCO, in collaboration with FUNGANA Association and the Town of Versailles proudly present the FUNGANA KENYA CROSS COUNTRY to be held on the 11th November 2009 from 1:30PM to 5:00PM at the Porchefontaine Stadium in Versailles (78).

The event, which consists of 4 Cross Country Races (children, youth, men and women), seeks to promote Kenya as a sporting Nation and confirm that sport is not only important for a healthy lifestyle but also for the promotion of a culture of peace and development.

Proposed activities include exhibitions, Kenyan Music, personalized diet and nutrition consultations, a magic show, Kenyan cuisine and to top it all a raffle for which the winner will go home with a Plasma TV screen.

Kenyans in the Diaspora are invited to participate in this event and show support for Kenyan Athletes and specifically those in France (who have confirmed attendance). Participants shall also support FUNGANA Association which raises funds through athletics events for Educational Projects in Kenya. During the summer of 2009, the Association's patron and French champion of 1500m in 2008 - Yoann Kowal - went to Kenya and distributed educational and building materials to three schools.

All proceeds of the event – registration, snacks, drinks, raffle tickets – shall be donated to FUNGANA association.
