THE STORY:

Dear Friend,

Last year alone, over 200,000 women living in sub-Saharan Africa died from preventable causes in pregnancy and childbirth. As a part of Team Amref Health Africa, I will be running the New York Marathon on November 6, 2016  and dedicating the 42.195 kilometers to the women in dire need of maternal care services before, during and after pregnancy, and the midwives who care for them. By supporting me and giving to Amref Health Africa, you'll help ensure that childbirth is a time of joy for more women in Africa.

This fundraiser is very important to me. Though NY will be my fourth marathon, it will be the first time I am actively running for a charitable venture particularly one that supports a cause I am passionate about. I know that many of us are able to relate to the issues of maternal health in Africa hence my reaching out to you.

I am hoping to raise a minimum of $3,000.00 (Three Thousand Dollars) before September 2016 but of course hope to do it much earlier.

None of the funds raised will go towards covering any of my expenses (marathon registration, travel, hotel etc). Every penny raised is being channeled to the support these women and each contributor will be able to view this directly on the funding page. All of my own personal expenses will be paid for out of my own pocket.

For anyone unable to give directly through the funding page (card issues etc), please reach out to me and I will accept offline donations and contribute on your behalf and in your name (or anonymously if you wish). You will able be able to view this.

In addition to raising funds for the cause, I am commiting on my part to train hard for the marathon and achieve a new personal best time.

Please give today and cheer me on as I run the race on November 6, 2016!

Thank you

Akintunde
