BENEFITING: FRIENDS WITHOUT A BORDER
EVENT DATE: Oct 23, 2016
When you donate you will be helping the Lao Friends Hospital for Children provide healthcare to children in Laos. 15,000 children are treated at the hospital every year; the money you give will make a real difference.
Why am I doing this? I hate sweating and getting out of breath but am training hard for a half marathon in Luang Prabang (northern Lao) to raise money for the Lao Friends Hospital for Children. I only started running a few years ago and certainly never dreamed of running a half marathon but Lao is a country I love and this is a cause I believe in.
What will the money go to? All money raised will go to the Lao Friends Hospital for Children which is run by the US not for profit group Friends Without a Border. They believe every child has the right to a healthy life and they accomplish this by providing medical care, creating community health education programs and training local healthcare professionals. Having visited many developing countries and often feeling saddened by the children's health their Treatment + Education + Prevention policy is one I support wholeheartedly.
Thank you Dear Friend! I truly appreciate your donation and will be keeping you updated via Facebook on my training program, the trip to Lao (including photos of the sights and locals) and the half marathon.
Thank you so much for donating. I really appreciate you giving your time and money to this cause and for supporting me and the Lao Friends Hospital for Children.
Want to help more? Please help spread the word by sharing this on Facebook or anywhere else that might help.
Thank you again dear friend.
