Female media personalities train with the First Lady

Female media personalities early on Thursday morning got an opportunity to train with First Lady Margaret Kenyatta ahead of her half marathon towards the Beyond Zero campaign.

A total of 15 media women drawn from various media houses took part in the morning run with Her Excellency along with her personal trainers.

NTV’s Smriti Vidyarthi, Sheila Mwanyigha and Victoria Rubadiri were among those who got an opportunity to be part of the Beyond Zero campaign that is aimed at addressing child and maternal health in Kenya.

The ladies also raised Sh 42,000 in an impromptu fundraiser after the training, an amount that will go to the Beyond Zero campaign.

The second edition of the First Lady Half Marathon will be held on March 8 at the Nyayo National Stadium and the registration is ongoing on and at selected Uchumi, Nakumatt and Equity Bank branches as well as at Nairobi Sport House.

The Beyond Zero campaign was started in January 2014 and has so far acquired 20 mobile clinics to assist in equipping counties, 19 of which have already been donated to different counties.
