We believe girls all around the world should have the opportunity to learn and realize their own personal potential.

The KOMERA GLOBAL RUN is a global movement of people around the world coming together to MOVE in support of girls’ education + empowerment. What began as a fun run for girls in a small village of Rwanda has developed into a global run for girls’ empowerment around the world!

Komera empowers young women in Rwanda by using sport as a tool to teach her she can #RunTheWorld!

We ran 2,863 miles in 4 cities for the Komera Global Run 2017! Click on a city below to see photos from the run.
