KIMBILIO HOSPICE MARATHON
On October 13, 2013 many of them gathered in the rural village of Kipkaren to run a marathon in celebration of World Hospice Day. The run begun and ended at Kimbilio Hospice and honored the lives and the memory of our guests.
Stories were shared, photos displayed. We laughed and rejoiced. We will be silent and remember.
The Kiswahili word Kimbilio, when literally translated, means “a place to run to.” For the sick and dying, in desperate need of care, Kimbilio Hospice has lived up to its name. And we believe it is worth running for. Will you join the team?
On this Sunday morning in October, we anticipated men, women and children to come together for the sake of community, to create awareness and to raise funds for the ongoing work of Kimbilio Hospice and they all came. And the runners, with unfathomable speed and endurance, ran.
As we prayed, dreamed and planned Kenya’s marathon, we imagined friends from around the world, joining us in this meaningful occasion. In Swahili, the word harambee means: “let’s come together.” We wanted to do just that.
Thank you for join Team Living Room. Your running helped adults and children at Kimbilio Hospice receive hope and freedom from pain. For more details, go to www.TeamLivingRoom.org.

World Cancer Day Film Event
On Saturday 4 February 2012 KEHPCA joined forces with the Kenya Cancer Association to celebrate World Cancer Day 2012 with a special film screening event in Nairobi.
Life Before Death is a multi-award winning documentary about terminally ill patients, their families, and the extraordinary health care professionals fighting to change the culture of medicine to be more focused on care, rather than exclusively on cure. It is an intimate hopeful and life-affirming collection of stories about living well and dying better. The film travels to 11 countries, and through the eyes of patients and their families we discover the inherent humanity that empowers the best of us to care for those beyond cure.
The event took place at Braeburn School, Gitanga Road, at 2.30pm. The event also included the launch of Kenya’s World Cancer Day theme song ‘I Fight For You’ featuring Abbi Nyinza, Ilaria Della Bidia and Charlie Lustman.
The event was free to attend, and no booking was required.
The Braeburn School café was open before and after the film screening.
World Cancer Day is an initiative of the Union for International Cancer Control, with an aim to help save millions of preventable deaths each year by raising awareness and education about cancer, and pressing governments and individuals across the world to take action against the disease.
Thank you for joining us!
