Net Impact Presents Chris Markl on Social Entrepreneurship & Kenya's Running Culture
Start Date: 10/16/2013Start Time: 4:00 PM
End Date: 10/16/2013End Time: 6:00 PM
Event Description:
Net Impact Presents Chirs Markle: While in school, Chris completed a 4,300 mile cross-country bicycle ride to reduce poverty, which raised over $85,000 and was featured on the Today Show and Sirius Radio. Two years later, Chris left his program in economics to start a socially and ethically responsible business in Kenya. This became Kourage Athletics, Kenya’s only running apparel company. As home of some of the best long-distance runners in the world, the country has to rely on foreign brands like Nike to provide them equipment. Now Kenya has Kourage. All employees from the fashion designers to the people on the production floor are Kenyan. All proceeds go to strengthening local communities. This is why Kourage Athletics is called Kenya’s running brand. Light snacks served at 4pm. Presentation begins at 4:30pm.
