BENEFITING: Giving Back Africa Inc

EVENT DATE: Nov 02, 2013

THE STORY:

On November 2nd, I will be running in the Moab Trail Half Marathon (www.moabtrailmarathon.com) with the goal of raising at least $500 for a beloved organization called Giving Back to Africa (http://givingbacktoafrica.org/).

GBA is a nonprofit dedicated to the long-term mission of educating young people in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). In partnership with local Congolese educational institutions and NGOs, GBA's goal is to empower beneficiaries - through service-centered education- to become servant-leaders capable of taking control of their own lives while serving as change agents in their local communities.

GBA and its founders have been a huge influence in my professional and personal life, in addition to taking a much needed comprehensive, local approach to community development. I have a great deal of respect for this organization and would be very thankful if you could support them in any way.

If nothing else, your moral support is great, too! Send any favorite CO running trails, inspirational quotes, your stories, etc. my way. I'll need all the help I can get.

Merci mingi!
