Almost every year some of our athletes get a job with KDF or Police or Prison in Kenya through running. Some others of our athletes have earned their money or are on their way to earning money through professional running. Athletes with good school grades get our support to study abroad. Every year since 2016 many athletes received scholarships from universities in the USA throught the partnership with Complete Scholarships. The remaining rest of our athletes are mentored by our staff in finding the right approach to start a small business in Kenya or/ and farming. Complete Sports is trying its best to help fund the start.
Emmanuel Korir WORLD RECORD!
Yay, a cow!
From September to November 2014, we had two athletes, Spencer Maiyo and Isaac Yego, invited to Germany. It was their first time outside of Kenya and we were able to cover their flights and housing through donations.
They were housed in an apartment near Altenkirchen with other runners. Both received very positive feedback on their behavior, character, and performance. By winning a few races in Germany they could take some money home. Isaac bought his family a cow and was able to help pay the medical bill for his sick mother.
