ORGANIZER: MALARIA NO MORE
EVENT: NYC Half 2012
EVENT DATE: Mar 18, 2012
Every minute in Africa a child under 5 dies from a complication associated with Malaria.
Growing up, I was blessed with unparalleled healthcare. As a post-graduate entering into my first full year as a young adult, I am determined to help children who didn't enter into this world with the same access to doctors, vaccines, and overall care.
Running has always empowered my mind, body, and spirit. For my second half-marathon on March 18th, I will run to empower the minds, bodies, and spirits of the children your dollars will protect from such a vicious (yet treatable) disease.
No amount is too small. If everyone can donate even $1, think of what we can do together. Thank you so much for your support!!
For the first time this year, TEAM MALARIA NO MORE has a charity team of TEN RUNNER ENTRIES in the NYC HALF MARATHON 2012, on MARCH 18, 2012 - the team's first running event of the year! Join Team MNM and help us help save kids' lives in Africa.
