BENEFITING: JATSON CHUMIG EDUCATIONAL CORPORATION
EVENT: AJC Peachtree Road Race
EVENT DATE: Jul 04, 2012
I'm running the Peachtree Road race to raise money for Jatson Chumig School and Orphanage in Lhasa, Tibet. It's my first Peachtree Road Race; running has given me my life back, and I want to use running to give back to the world.
Their mission is as follows:
"The Jatson Chumig Welfare Special School in Lhasa, Tibet, is a non-profit, NGO, charitable institution run by Tibetans for handicapped, orphaned, and destitute children of Tibet. Since our founding in 1993, the orphanage and school has been providing these children with a supportive, nurturing home (housing, food and clothes) and a basic education of six years. We also provide vocational job training, as well as entrance into middle school, high school and the university. It is our goal to give these children a future where there otherwise would not be one."
