Dear Running Community,
The NSGA is proud to release it’s official call for runners for Love4Gambia version 6.0 in 2016. We are looking for experienced runners to join Pa Modou, Yankuba and Modou on the epic 6th running of the 424km cross-country journey to the Atlantic Ocean in Banjul.
If you are passionate about running and interested in changing the lives of young Gambians, then the Love4Gambia run is for you! This experience will also change you and the lives of so many in The Gambia!
Our new runner (or runners) will join the ranks of our previous 5 successful teams:
2011 – Erin Poirier & Ashley Sharpe, Halifax
2012 – Andrea Moritz, Ottawa
2013 – Jennifer & Cielianna Pasiciel, Halifax
2014 – Terry SanCartier, Ottawa

Dates for Love4Gambia 2016 will be finalized when our runner(s) are confirmed but must be scheduled around Ramadan. Previous runs took place between June and September over an average of 17 days of running + 2 rest days.
The Nova Scotia Gambia Association, a registered Canadian charity is celebrating over 30 years of providing much needed health education in the Gambia and other parts of Africa. This run and the money raised by it support the health, education and human rights activities of NSGA in The Gambia.
This is your year to make a difference!
