The Miles Levin Nepal Foundation for Health and Education (MLNFHE) and the 2012 Miles Levin Miracle Fund at Beaumont Children's hospital are reaching out to the entire community in an effort to raise awareness and funds for the Miles Levin Nepal Foundation. This year we're making it easier than ever to let all of our participants, volunteers and supporters get involved.
Please support us by donating today or go one step further and help us fundraise by joining a team below or creating your own team. You'll get your own fundraising page to share with all your amazing family and friends.
MLNFHE is a non-profit foundation that was started in January 2011, with the mission of improving the lives of children in the remote Nepalese Himalayan district of Khotang. This area has a population of over 250,000 people in about 70 villages. This area is cut off from roads and communication, has no waste management (toilets) or clean drinking water, and has severely limited access to adequate public health, health care, and educational opportunities. The 2012 Miles Levin Miracle Fund at beaumont children's hospital was also created to financially assist families in the Detroit area with children undergoing treatment for Pediatric Cancers and other serious childhood illnesses. You can learn more by going to our website http://www.miles2nepal.org.
ABOUT MILES: Miles Levin was an amazing young man who wrote in a blog about his battle with cancer (CarePages.com) prior to dying just before his 19th birthday from a rare Pediatric Malignancy (www.levinstory.com). “Dying is not what scares me: it is dying having had no impact”. Your participation in this event will allow Miles to continue to make an impact.
We have lots of awesome prizes (like an iPad3) for you to use to get your friends and family to donate to your fundraiser. Click here to check it out, choose a prize and email everyone you know about it.
Half of the funds raised are to provide financial assistance to local families with children undergoing treatment for cancer and other serious childhood illnesses and the other half will be earmarked for projects in Nepal Together, MLNFHE and MLMF are helping children close to home and on the other side of the globe
