JavaJog Returns to Seattle in April

JavaJog is returning to Seattle this April in conjunction with the Specialty Coffee Association’s Global Specialty Coffee Expo. Since 2013, JavaJog has brought together hundreds of coffee aficionados, runners, walkers and friends to raise more than US$75,000 in support of coffee women in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Ethiopia through local organisations on the ground. After a year hiatus, the JavaJog organising committee is producing another great fun run and fundraiser. JavaJog 2017 will be held Friday, 21 April at South Lake Union Park in Seattle and will again focus on raising money for women in coffee growing regions from around the world. “This year’s goal is to welcome 250 runners who will collectively raise $25,000 for projects to support women throughout the world,” says JavaJog co-founder Kimberly  Easson. “We are confident that our mission to connect women to the coffee community and funnel resources to projects that enable them to improve their position, their well-being and that of their families, farms, communities and organizations, will be met.”
