BENEFITING: GRASSROOT SOCCER
ORGANIZER: GRASSROOT SOCCER
EVENT DATE: Nov 03, 2013
I just returned from 13 amazing months in Cape Town with Grassroot Soccer working as a Programmes and Business Development intern both in our Cape Town HQ and our site in Khayeltisha. I was honored to have worked for and on such a powerful and positive organization and am excited to continue giving back with my legs. I like running but am in no way experienced. This past April I ran the Two Oceans Half Marathon which was about 5 miles longer than I had ever run before. So depending on how training goes this could be double my longest ever distance and I cant wait. Every dollars goes a long way at GRS and I would deeply appreaciate your donation.
