Botanica Ethiopia goes the Distance!

Team Botanica Ethiopia ran like the wind on Sunday; We all  crossed the finish line at the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival in under an hour!

It was a sunny spring morning as we joined some 35,000 other runners over the Sydney Harbour Bridge, through the city and down to the Opera House Quays. The choppers were out early; we were cheered by spectators, drummers and placards along the route; “Got stamina? Call me!” It was a fun day.

And we even got a photo with a champion – The Ethiopian winner of the Women’s Marathon, Letay Hadish!

Thank you to all those who so generously sponsored us. We raised a total of $800 which will help pay for permaculture training and advice for the medicinal herb garden in Fiche, Ethiopia. Stay tuned to the blog to see how the garden project is growing.

We’ve also passed on $100  raised through the event to the UNHCR East-Africa Crisis Fund.
