THE STORY:

Hello,

Last year, I completed my first Ironman. This year I am upping the ante and going to do two.

The first Ironman this year will be in Madison, WI of which was also my first Ironman. I chose the Madison Ironman because it was close to family that were amazingly hospitable and supportive during the race. They also have an amazing adoption story that continues to unfold of an incredible little guy named ,Gelena, that was born in Ethiopia.

In honor of this incredible family, I have selected to raise funds for a charity that is close to their hearts –

Roots Ethiopia –Supporting community identified solutions for job creation and education in Southern Ethiopia.

Roots Ethiopia supports two ongoing projects—income-generating activities (IGAs), intended to help unemployed or underemployed adults receive training and start-up funds to kick-start a sustainable business enterprise, and school sponsorships. Our third effort, learning resources projects (LRPs), are undertaken a few times a year and are special projects. Learning resources projects support local under-resourced schools with essential learning materials to benefit whole communities of learners.

Periodically, Roots Ethiopia also fundraises to help with pressing needs, such as food shortages. For instance, in May 2012, we raised over $5,000 for a grain drive. Our funds went straight to the purchase of grain that was distributed to families facing hardships related to the year’s late rainfall.

It’s important to note that while Roots Ethiopia expresses its inclinations and preferences to Meserete Kristos Church, we ultimately believe in MKC’s on-the-ground knowledge, leadership and community rapport and allow them to make funding decisions that are in the best interests of the community
