Nairobi, Kenya - After Joan Massah Cherop broke the tape to win the 2019 Detroit Marathon, she knew 2020 was going to be a year of even bigger races and greater opportunities. Soon, an invitation to the Paris Marathon confirmed her hopes, and she stepped up her training. We all know what happened next through: race delays and cancellations. Like many athletes, this left Joan not just feeling let down, but struggling financially. Her main sponsor, the Kenyan running company Enda, jumped into action to help. Following the Kenyan running tradition of working with others to lift each other up, Enda built a coalition of brands in the running space to sponsor Joan and fellow Enda Elite Athlete Kenneth Kemboi to lead an attempt to set new fastest known times (FKT) running up Mt. Kenya.
