Triathlon/Marathon for Educate!

BENEFITING: EDUCATE

Jason Griffith

THE STORY:

Educate! has been working to teach entrepreneurship to Uganda's youth since 2004. It is based on the simple idea that a country's youth can change their own future if they are taught how to solve any problem. Its innovate ciriculum has been taught to over 3,300 students through their direct program, and this year it became the foundation for Uganda's nationwide education reform where it will touch 15,000 students.

The Plan

Two years ago I ran my first half marathon, and last year I finished my first triathlon (.93 mile swim, 24.8 mile bike, and 6.2 mile run). This year, I am planning to race another olympic distance triathlon and a marathon. But I need your help - something has got to motivate me to get across the finish lines. Doing something to help Educate! with their great work in Uganda (and keeping my promise to you when you support me) is just the thing. So what do you say?

Race Information

Kasia and I have paid all of the entry and travel fees ($350), so 100% of your donation goes to Educate! In addition, I'm adding a great deal of "sweat" equity... get it... sweat. Come on - that kind of punnery has got to be worth at least a few dollars!!
