BENEFITING: Children International
ORGANIZER: Children International
EVENT: San Francisco Marathon 2015
EVENT DATE: Jul 26, 2015
Perhaps you may know, I enjoy staying active outdoors when I am not pleasantly engrossed with the details of my restaurant. In addition, I sincerely believe in the efforts of organizations like Children International. Therefore, I am running the San Francisco Half Marathon this Sunday, July 26th and, as part of my race efforts, am raising financial support for the Bay Area chapter of Children International.
Please support me to drive real, lasting change to children living in poverty. You can create an oasis of hope for children in the middle of a slum they call home. Shahabad Dairy is home to more than 21,000 families crammed into six blocks in the northwest part of Delhi, India -- near Rohini. Most of the residents have lived in the area for the past 25 years after being evicted from government and private lands in Delhi. The area is characterized by poor infrastructure and crowded living conditions. The resettlement colony lacks basic amenities, facilities, and resources for their children.
Children International has plans to develop The Shahabad Dairy community center, which will offer health and dental services, youth programs, a library and meeting spaces in one modern and easily accessible space. The centers make it easier to serve sponsored children because they concentrate the organization’s programs and services into one central location.
Children International, in partnership with you, can help!
I know you may have already committed to another organization this year. If you are able to support, please do.
