“The Safari Run is a remarkable opportunity to see some of the world's finest distance runners compete right here in Bernalillo County - and gives our kids the opportunity to get some coaching and inspiration from these amazing athletes,” says Bernalillo County Commission Chair Maggie Hart Stebbins. “We also celebrate our community's generosity in supporting Global Health Partnerships with medical and community projects in rural Kenya.”
