For the Zim Run, there will be 13 cross country races, with distances based on the age group. There will also be a children's art contest, with prizes will be awarded to the top artist in each grade.
"(For) a lot of kids with disabilities, or (if) they can't run, the art contest is a real good place to start," Clark said.
Participants are invited to donate used running shoes for the shoe drive. The Zim Fair anchors the entire day, showcasing art, music, games and food from Zimbabwe.
Last year's event raised $30,000. This year, Clark said she hopes to raise an equal or greater amount. Each year, the funds are dedicated to a specific project, and this year, the SLF will use the proceeds to fund micro-grants for teens graduating from the orphanage.
"They will be able to use these grants, around $300, to start a business or further their education," Clark said.
The race has a $5 entry fee and is held at at St. Joseph School, 1120 Miramonte Ave. More information can be found at zimbabweparaguay.net/zim-run or by calling 650-941-9206.
