What is it?


Badizo in Latin:
Run, Walk, Go

Badizo events are family-friendly. We 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. 

Badizo and WhoLives Video

In 2024, we're drilling a crucial well in Kakinda, Africa, home to 100 families near Lake Victoria, with Kusa as the nearest town. Women and children trek 2.5 miles multiple times a day for water, which is dirty and polluted. With 300 children in the village, fresh water is essential. Badizo's support offers life-changing relief.

Fresh water is life-changing, bringing tremendous benefits:

  • Allows children to attend school

  • Better health 

  • Economic independence

  • Increasing farm yields

  • Better sanitation.

WHOlives is committed to bringing clean water to developing communities in a self-sustainable process. Badizo is excited to work with WHOlives and change lives.

At Badizo, all donations beyond the registration fee directly support our partner charities, ensuring 100% of your extra contributions benefit a good cause.

This year's Badizo event is unique: record your daily exercise time, with every 10 minutes equating to a kilometer, whether you're running, walking, biking, doing yoga, CrossFit, lifting weights, or any other activity. Consistency is key.

Join three multi-day events, each culminating in a main event. Track your progress on a map from point A to B, aiming to reach the village where a drill will provide clean community water access.

                The race isn't to the swift, but to those who keep going.


Why Badizo?

Join Badizo events to make a global impact while enhancing your well-being. Your participation shapes a brighter future for the world.


We ensure that any additional donations beyond the $5 entry fee go directly to helping those in need, making every dollar count.


This year's events are not only fun but also designed to motivate regular exercise—every activity counts, from running to yoga to weightlifting.


Earn 1 kilometer for every 10 minutes of exercise, progressing on a map towards Kakinada, Kenya, where we'll fund drilling for a clean water well.

Each event will last 8 weeks*
We promote regular exercise for your health. Five 30-minute sessions weekly to stay on track from Nairobi to Kusa. You decide the frequency and duration of workouts.
  • Event 1 - Nairobi to Ntulelei (114 Kilometers, 70 Miles)
  • Event 2 - Ntulelei to Bomet Central (119 Kilometers, 74 Miles)
  • Event 3 - Bomet Cental to Kusa (117 Kilometers, 72 Miles)
  • Event 1: 19 hour of exercise = 114K
  • Event 2: 19 hours and 50 minutes of exercise = 119K 
  • Event 3: 19 hours and 30 minutes of exercise = 117K
