THE STORY:

I am running 26.2 miles in San Francisco this summer to raise money for the women and children of Malawi. This country is known as the "Warm Heart of Africa" for its friendly people and beautiful landscape. However, it has been ranked one of the poorest countries in the world. People lack the basic needs of life such as access to food, clean water, healthcare and education. Malawi is plagued with many mothers dying while giving birth to their children! In 2016, my friend Dr. Anne Alaniz and the Pothawira Foundation managed to open the doors to the Pothawira Birthing Center, where mothers can deliver safely with trained medical personnel. $200 will provide safe child birth for a woman. That's $200 to save a mother, a child and a whole family! Support my run to bring better access to safe child birth and clean water to Malawi.
