THE STORY:

"If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together." - African proverb

I am running the NYC Marathon to help support a young Congolese woman, Miriam Modimo Yoko, a student at the University of Kinshasa who would like to become a conservation biologist. Your support will help her finish her undergraduate degree and set her on her way towards a PhD in fish ecology and conservation.  As Miriam says, “the Democratic Republic of Congo is all about fish – food, livelihoods, tradition, trade and economics." Miriam is determined to become one of the Congo’s first female ichthyologists. The Congo desperately needs more women like Miriam who are committed to protecting its incredible natural resources. By helping this young and promising scientist, we can take a step toward promoting women in science across the world and aiding conservation in Africa. Thank you for your support!
