Zimbabwe Sign

Ellen’s “In Africa”

Remember the ‘ol movie, “Out of Africa?”   Well, Ellen’s “In Africa!”

Zim Sign "Ellen's in Africa"

Zim Sign “Ellen’s in Africa”


This sign is going to make the rounds with Ellen, visiting schools and events and building excitement for children and adults to come to the Zim Run and Fair.

As students begin to see the colors of Zimbabwe and listen to the stories and learn about Africa, they will become fully ready to participate on Race Day.

We are excited to watch them learn, create art and get fit!
