What is it?
Badizo in Latin:
Run, Walk, Go
Badizo brings active people around the world virtually to improve the world one step at a time. Your participation will benefit those in need around the globe. You help make the world a better place.
We are partnering with two charities for this year's 2023 Virtual 5k event.
The Mercy Project - Mercy Project’s mission is to rescue children from slavery.
Mercy Project is an innovative non-profit working to eradicate child slavery in Ghana, Africa. Through aquaculture (or cage fishing), Mercy Project has economically empowered dozens of rural communities leading to the rescue and reintegration of more than 250 children back into their biological families.
Unified Languages - Teach people English to bridge the gap between cultures.
Unified Languages helps people to understand, read, write, and speak English. We have seen how this additional skill and other employable skills can provide people with jobs in a global economy and bridge the gap between cultures.
At Badizo, we promise whatever you donate beyond the 5k registration fee, 100% will go toward the charities we are partnering with.
Badizo works exactly the same way as other running events. The difference is that you create your own course at the location of your choice. Then run, walk, or wheelchair the course you designed. You will track and report your performance that you have completed the distance.
At Badizo events, everyone can participate and make a positive impact on people all over the world. You are benefitting your health and contributing to making the world a better place.
Small steps can lead to significant changes in someone's life. You might not realize the impact of your actions, but your participation will have a ripple effect on the world.
Our organization wants to be transparent about where your entrance fee goes. A portion covers overhead costs such as T-shirts, mailings, and website expenses. However, we also will make a meaningful impact on the world.
That's why we promise that any extra contributions you make will go directly towards helping others in need. Every dollar you donate will be used to benefit people. You can be confident that you're making a difference in the lives of those who need it the most.
Thank you for your generosity and for joining us in our mission to improve the world.
Where's Badizo Held?
With our event, you have the freedom to run wherever you want, no matter where you are. You get to decide your own course, run/walk/go between the race event dates, and then report your results at the end of the event.
