EVENT DATE: Sep 22, 2013
This is about doing 3 events for Destiny Rescue's Prevention Program in Chang Rai.
Being a school teacher, I've always been passionate about making a difference in the lives of young people. With Destiny Rescue, they are dedicated to rescuing children from human trafficking and sexual exploitation.
So in order to see much needed funds go towards a prevention home in Thailand, I have decided to combine 3 events which will make up the extra $3500 needed to complete the project. The other $9300 has already been raised by the secondary students of Genesis Christian College in Brisbane which I'm so privileged to work at.
The 3 events will be 1) Tough Mudder Team Event - Sunshine Coast 2) 70.3 Ironman Triathlon - Mooloolaba, that I will be competing in for the 1st time 3) Gatorade Tri Series that individuals will be competing in at Kawana. Each event will be aiming to raise awareness and funds for Destiny Rescue.
Here is what the money will be going towards specifically:
More and more children continue to enter our Prevention Program in Chiang Rai, Thailand, because they are at-risk of being trafficked or exploited. Poverty or the loss of one or both parents makes these kids extremely vulnerable to human traffickers or exploitative situations. To meet the demands of the influx of children into our care, we need more accommodation. You can be part of helping develop a new Prevention Home in Chiang Rai. Renovations are required and include a new water system, plumbing, wall repairs, paint, roofing, windows, fans, electrical work, bathroom and toilet amenities.
