BENEFITING: The Ama Foundation

Aaron Ellison

THE STORY:

To inspire donations for Ama Ghar children's home in Kathmandu, Nepal, we will be running the Helsinki Marathon August 17th in Helsinki Finlands. We had searched diligently and this is the only race we could find that starts at a civilized hour (3:00 PM). Most marathons start before the birds wake up, we don't like waking up before the birds.

The mission of Ama Ghar is to provide a loving home and education for the most underprivileged children of Nepal, and your support for this group of 50 inspiring kids would be appreciated. It is supported by Ama Foundation, an American 501(c)(3) non profit organization, so your contribution is tax deductible. Please view the linked Ama Ghar video, or go to www.ama-foundation.org for more information.

If you would like to join in this effort please feel free to join our Crowdrise team and forward this to those you know. You won’t be expected to run or anything. We would like to raise lots of money for these kids so please be kind enough to send this link to two friends and one person you don’t like.

I am excited to see these yahoos get to the starting line for Ama Ghar. I here you have been training really hard. In my wildest dreams, I could not have imagined Todd, of all brothers, racing? Walking yes! It is amazing what an experience like Ama Ghar has done to change us all! The children are growing up to be incredible young adults because of the Ama Ghar extended family. Thank you Todd for shedding light on Ama Ghar. We have all be blessed with these children in our lives. 4 years ago
