Mayhem for Kenya walk slated for May 25

Cindy and Paul Mullet, right, have been hitting the pavement each day in May for their annual Mayhem for Kenya 5K fundraiser. They will cap off their effort with a 10K fundraiser walk on May 25, inviting others to walk with them or invest financially.


The Mullets are ready to strap on their walking shoes and hit the trail supporting those doing God’s work in Kenya.

The duo will host the fifth annual Mayhem for Kenya on May 25, culminating in them walking a 5K a day in May in preparation for the fundraiser.

“The chubby old grandpa and his lovely bride are once again walking a “5K every day in the month of May,” said Paul Mullet, who along with his wife Cindy will be treading the path around Fredericksburg’s trail to raise funds for Kenyan pastors, their families and communities.

This is the primary fundraiser that helps Kenyan widows, single moms and pastor couples with vital food, basic medical needs and other essentials.

In doing so, the couple will walk 10 miles with a greater purpose, beginning their fundraiser at 6 a.m. at the Fredericksburg Trailhead.

The annual event is one that the Mullets started years ago after they traveled to Kenya and came away blessed by the people of the country’s sincere love for life despite not having much. In addition, the church there is growing rapidly, and there are many pastors in remote areas who give everything they have to benefit the people of their community despite the hazardous challenges that accompany their endeavors.

Working through African Christian Missions International, the Mullets will be walking and seeking support to provide food and other items to families who lack food and essentials.

What is even more pressing in their hearts is connecting with and serving the pastors in Kenya who give literally the shirts off their backs to those in need, often putting the needs of others in their region ahead of their own families.

That is why the Mullets are invigorated about walking to raise funds, and Paul Mullet said for just $100 per month someone can support one of the many pastors in Kenya with not only food for their families, but with fellowship and support, which the pastors, in turn, will help build up and serve their own communities.

“We invite everyone to join in the walk either by donating or by helping us walk, even if you simply walk to help encourage us,” Mullet said. “We have made great process over the past years, but now we are working toward helping them become self-sustainable.”

Anyone may do so by walking or running 10 miles or by sponsoring participants.

“People can feel free to walk or run as many or as few miles as they wish,” Mullet said.

Anyone interested in joining the walk to raise funds or to support the effort financially can contact Mullet at 330-464-8226 or visit them on Facebook to unite to support Kenyans in need by walking one or all of the 3.3-mile loops or by donating financially.

“We would love to have you join us for this fun day that will help many people with essential needs that we may take for granted,” Mullet said.
