BENEFITING: FLYING KITES
EVENT DATE: Dec 01, 2012
Feel the Rhythm, Feel the Rhyme - It's Donating Time!
Flying Kites is holding their first annual Dash for Dreams, a 10k run/walk through Central Park. Flying Kites is a fantastic organization that works with children throughout Kenya. By creating outreach programs, schools, and homes that place an emphasis on not only the basic needs of orphaned kids (food, clothing, shelter) but also on education and excellence; they are working to create sustainable change in Kenya and inspire a generation of empowered leaders who will go on to fight poverty not only their own families and their own country, but the world.
You can read more about the good work that Flying Kites does here, and I highly recommend spending some time on the “Our Model” page. The organization places the utmost importance on social justice and community involvement; change starts within the local community.
Help us reach our goal and donate to our amazing Cool Runnings team! As a team we would like to raise over $1000 so anything that you can give would be great. "Cool Runnings" = "Peace Be The Journey."
The influence of time, money, and compassion in Africa cannot be overstated. But opportunity? Opportunity is the foot in the door that the time, money, and compassion opens. And if we can help open the door by running this race, then Flying Kites can help kids take that step.
Now...feel the rhythm, feel the rhyme, get on up…it’s donating time!
