EVENT DATE: Jun 27, 2015
The Bug Off 5K (June 27th, 2015 in Pasco, WA) is sponsored by the United Methodist Church, and it raises money for malaria relief. The money we raise will be DOUBLED by a matching gift! Malaria is a preventable and treatable disease, but it still kills a child every minute. It's a disease of poverty, affecting mostly poor people and keeping them poor. The majority of people who die from malaria are pregnant women and kids under age 5 in sub-Saharan Africa.
No child should live in fear of a mosquito bite. That's why we're raising money for Imagine No Malaria. This extraordinary effort of the United Methodist Church is saving lives daily. $5 can pay for a lifesaving course of medication. $10 is enough to buy a bed net that protects an entire family. $100 covers the expenses of an anti-malaria campaign in a school. Imagine what $1000 could do!
We hope that you'll join us in fundraising for this important cause. Together, we can imagine a world with no malaria… and then make that dream a reality!
