BENEFITING: Orphanaid Africa
EVENT DATE: May 27, 2013
Each year I run the BolderBolder 10K in Boulder, CO for OrphanAid Africa (OA), a organization I've been involved with since 2008 on many levels, including in-country volunteer, U.S.A. Manager, and now as a U.S. board member. OrphanAid Africa is doing big things. The organization is on the cutting edge of 'Care Reform,' which positivley affects the fate of orphans and vulnerable children in Ghana. Through their partnership with the Government of Ghana (via Dept. of Social Welfare), OA is helping engourage and implement the shift from orphanages/institutions to reuniting children with their families and promoting foster care so that children can thrive.
Thank you in joining me in supporting their cause to help give children an opportunity for health, education, and happiness in a loving family environment.
