BENEFITING: HED FUND
This August I will be running an 119km race (UTMB - TDS) though the Mont-Blanc in support of education for poor Somali students. The race is incredibly beautiful and challenging mountainous ultra marathon that includes numerous sections at altitude (>2,500m) and passes through Italy and France. The school I am supporting (Abaarso )has been featured at 60 Minutes, The New York Times, MSNBC, BBC. Abaarso’s has achieved extraordinary success, despite conventional wisdom believing it is a "mission impossible" anywhere, never mind in the unrecognized breakaway country of Somaliland. Today, there are over 80 Abaarso students continuing their education abroad, the majority in the US, including at such prestigious institutions as Harvard, Yale, Brown, and MIT thanks to generosity of people all over the world. Let's give one more student a chance for a better life!
