THE STORY:

AGA KHAN FOUNDATION USA wrote -

The Aga Khan Foundation U.S.A. is honored to be a partner charity for the 2015 Boston Marathon -- the second year in a row!

Hello

My name is Jessica Reynolds. I come from a solid family of runners, 3 generations strong, and I have been given the opportunity to run the Boston Marathon (a dream that goes back 17 years) on behalf of the Aga Khan Foundation!

The Aga Khan Foundation helps improve the quality of life for some of the poorest in our world by supporting programs that promote self reliance with dignity and compassion. Programs include girls education, clean water, hydroelectric power in remote villages, nurses training, and more. The Foundation makes a long term commitment to innovative programs that enable the worlds poorest to become self reliant. Poverty is a complex problem, yet we make progress when we join together. I am asking that you join with me to help build a better future for all of us.

I really connect with Aga Khans core set of values and ethics that it was founded upon. Respect for human dignity, Compassion and solidarity with the less fortunate, Self-reliance, tolerance, openness and understanding toward other peoples cultures, values and faiths, the right for communities to participate and determine local priorities and service to humanity through volunteerism. If we all lived by these values imagine the improvements in our world!

What happened at the 2013 Boston Marathon spurred a wave of solidarity with the people of New England. For me, running 26.2 miles through Boston’s streets is a chance to keep that feeling going and express the ethic of compassion and the core values that guides the work of the Aga Khan Foundation. By pledging to run in the Boston Marathon, I have committed to raise $5,000. That amount alone would install water pumps for 6 villages in Rural Kenya. How lucky are we here in New Hampshire to have clean water any time we need it.

No donation is too small. $10 helps a landless family in India start a “landless garden” that can make them self sufficient in food. $100 buys a pair of goats for a poor family in Pakistan which provides a steady income source. $500 provides water for 100 women in rural Mali to garden year-round for food security and income. $1,000 provides reading books for every classroom in a school in Kenya. It’s all very exciting and I am blessed to be able to be a part of it. I hope you can help me with my fundraising efforts.

Thank you in advance for supporting me in this cause and helping me to get to the start line of my first Boston Marathon!
