BENEFITING: Hope for West Africa Foundation, Inc.
EVENT DATE: May 13, 2012
Running for a Cause!!!!
We all run for different reasons. The obvious, and perhaps the most common reasons have to do with staying fit and creating a healthy balance in life. Among many things, running takes determination, focus, and guts.
This year OUR WONDERFUL TEAM is running in the 9th Annual Delaware Half Marathon Running Festival to support Hope For West Africa.
About Hope for West Africa
The mission of the Hope for West Africa Foundation is to cultivate partnerships to advance and support programs for those infected or affected by HIV/AIDS in West Africa.
In 2005, two ordinary American women and three of their young adult children volunteered at Faith Alive Hospital in Jos, Nigeria. Forever changed by what they saw, they returned home to suburban Maryland determined to help.
In Nigeria, life is focused on survival in the face of deadly diseases and a limited supply of medicine and food. What Nigerians do have is faith and joy that transcends their circumstances and welcomes the foreign visitor into their hearts. Friendships endure over oceans and time.
Hope for West Africa Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded to provide a way for you to be involved and perhaps one day volunteer in Nigeria.
Hope for West Africa Foundation works in partnership with charities in the region to serve those infected and affected by HIV/AIDS. We establish a personal relationship with the founders of each organization and work with them on a project by project basis.
