  • In a few weeks, I will be in Boston along with my fellow AKF Run Team members, running in the Boston Marathon. How did I get to this point? To tell the truth, I have run the Boston Marathon once before. In fact I met the AKF Run Team at the 2014 Boston Marathon. When I saw the Aga Khan Foundation booth, it reminded me of the Foundation’s work in Kenya where I grew up. Then a few months ago I learned that the Aga Khan Foundation would be a Boston Marathon charity partner again this year, and was accepting applications for runners.
