Over the course of the past 3 years, the AMAZING MAASAI GIRLS PROJECT has hosted the Amazing Maasai Marathon and raised over US$100,000 in scholarships, has enrolled almost 40 talented but financially-handicapped young Maasai girls to high school, and is on its way to setting up its endowment fund!
Year 4 of the Amazing Maasai Marathon is being held on August 30th, 2014, and I will be there once again, not as Race Director, not as Race Photographer, but as a participant! After hanging around professional and amateur runners for the past 3 years, it is high time I get off my lazy butt and run my first half marathon!
And though I am not organizing or photographing the race this year, I am still working hard to build our scholarship fund to continue to send more Maasai girls to school, increasing their lifelong economic prospects and forestall childhood marriage. By making a contribution, you can join me in supporting girls education in Kenya!
If you can't make it out to Kenya, but want to get more involved, why not "donate" a 10K run on August 30th via one of our worldwide Global Runs? Join one of 17 Global Runs in cities around the world to show support for those participating in the Amazing Maasai Marathon, and promote girls education (and get fit!). It's free!
