Home > Welcome to The Fregenet Foundation

The Fregenet Foundation is a non-profit 501(c) (3) organization dedicated to creating educational opportunities for impoverished children. The Foundation was formed in loving memory of Fregenet Tafesse Woubshet, a 29 year-old Ethiopian-American who died in July 2003 before fulfilling her life long dream of helping the needy children of Ethiopia.

L.A. Marathon is one of the key fund raising events for The Fregenet Foundation. Last year, over $5000 were raised for the construction of the Library and general operating expenses.

Support us by sponsoring one of our runners or run the marathon for us!
