Tergat joins bandwagon

World food programme Ambassador has also joined the bandwagon of athletes donating their kits to charity.

World Marathon record holder Paul Tergat of Kenya who is the African Ambassador of the IAAF humanitarian project Athletics for a Better World has donated his 2005 New York Marathon winning vest and an autographed copy of his book Paul Tergat: 'Running to the Limit' to the IAAF.

Meanwhile, 379 Dream Team members who pledged to raise funds and lobby for Ethiopia's orphans and vulnerable children through their participation in the 2005 Toyota Great Ethiopian Run raised more than $18,000 in last sunday's 'Run For Their Dreams', The Great Ethiopia Run's first ever sponsorship campaign.

The Dream Team members were joined by 2000 members of youth anti-AIDS clubs from all regions of Ethiopia who had traveled to Addis Ababa for weekend of activities culminating in their participation in the UNICEF 10 K youth challenge.
