SSEJ Fun Run

Events Details

Thousands of Jews are stuck in Ethiopia living in horrible conditions and are almost completely unprepared for Covid-19. In an effort to save as many lives as possible, The Struggle to Save Ethiopian Jewry (SSEJ) is holding the Feed Our Family Fun Run asking you to raise money to save Jewish Lives.  For more information on SSEJ, Ethiopian Jews and rabbinical letter of support please see

The Virtual Ethiopian Jewry Fun Run, Walk & Ride can be completed anytime from Wednesday, July 15th - Wednesday, July 29th, and you can walk, run or ride your bike anywhere that works best for you- literally from anywhere in the world! You can even use a treadmill or stationary bike if you prefer. You have 2 options for participation, 1) complete a typical 5K (3.1 mile) distance or 2) take on the Feed Our Family Fun Run and make your own challenge and walk, run or ride as many miles as you like during the 2 weeks.
