ORGANIZER: Children of Peru Foundation
EVENT DATE: Apr 30, 2017
I wish you and your family a very happy and healthy new year! I am running my first full marathon at Big Sur for the Children of Peru organization (http://www.childrenofperu.org), which is one of Big Sur International Marathon's trusted partner for charity.
I chose Big Sur due to its unparalleled spiritual beauty and positive influence it has on anyone! Also there is nothing like running the long 26.2 miles for a noble cause that would positively impact a community. I am happy that I am doing my first marathon for a good noble cause, because it indeed gives more value to what I am trying to accomplish with each of the 40,000 steps of a marathon!
After researching quite a few non-profilt organizations and their testimonials, I came across "Children of Peru". As a mother, I was compelled to choose this charity out of the other available few at this time. This specific charity helps the underprivileged kids in Peru with better education and health care. After speaking with the President of the organization Mr. Edouard Ruelle, it was understood that they currently have 4 projects for better health and education. I found Edouard Ruelle a very genuine person and he was very prompt in his responses to address my questions and concerns. Also he mentioned that two of their education focussed projects are conducted by Amantani and Manos Unidas.
I personally believe that health is the true wealth, and knowledge is power. The struggles of my own health conditions, has taught me the importance of staying healthy and knowledgeable! I am all to support the kids of Peru both for their health and education to help them stay active and enjoy this life to the fullest.
If you believe in this cause, kindly support this organization in their noble endeavors to help the children of Peru.
My mission for my first marathon:
Running a marathon is challenging, but I am giving back with every step I take!
Thank you so much for taking your valuable time to read this page!
