Catherine Morton

2017 Fellow from Ghana

Catherine Morton is a spirited entrepreneur with years of experience in project management and international relations. She manages and is co-owner of the first international half marathon in Ghana, the Millennium Marathon, where she works on promoting and advocating for the Sustainable Development Goal of Good Health and Well-Being, developing sports tourism in Ghana, as well as helping charities raise funding through the marathon. Created in 2015, the Millennium Marathon has attracted over 20,000 runners in its first 2 years and is promoted nationwide with races in all Ten Regions of Ghana. Catherine is also the founder of the Annual Accra Kiddy Mile Races for 2,000 children aged 3-15 years helping them achieve physical milestones and giving them a feel of marathon day while raising funds for children-related causes. The race is helping establish a NICU center for babies at the Madina Polyclinic in Accra this year. She is driven by her goal of creating the biggest destination race in Africa that brings the continent together, advocates for social issues and raises funds for various charities. Upon completion of her fellowship, Catherine is looking to apply skills, ideas, and experiences gained to strengthen her efforts of creating a successful international race brand for Ghana that will attract international partners and participants and help more charities doing great work for the community.
