Join the Run for Malawi Challenge

In 2011, Nu Skin distributors and employees are teaming up to be a force for good for the Mtalimanja Village in Malawi. From January 13 to June 30, every mile you run will count towards raising money for the Malawi Build a Village Project. The more miles participants run in total, the more Nu Skin will contribute. For every 1,000 miles we run, one secondary education scholarship will be made available for a child in Malawi.


Since only 25 percent of the Malawian population is able to attend secondary school, your efforts will profoundly affect the lives of youth who have the ambition to continue their education but lack the funds to do so.


And we’re off to a great start! We’re excited to announce that the North America distributors and staff have already accumulated more than 7,000 miles. That means in only a month we’ve earned seven secondary education scholarships for children in need. 


How does it work?

The Nike+ system consists of a small sensor attached to your shoe, which records the distance of your runs. It communicates with the Nike+ Sportband, the Nike+ Sportkit with iPod nano, or directly with a second or third Generation iPod Touch, iPhone 3GS, or iPhone 4.  


Once the Nike+ device is connected to your computer, it uploads your workout data onto the Nike+ website where we have a Run for Malawi challenge page. After you have joined the challenge, every mile you run will count towards scholarship donations!
