THE STORY:

Eradicating Malaria

From May 31 to June 2, we plan to take part in a competitive sports challenge in Turkey with people from around the world. Events include biking, running, swimming, sea kayaking, and beach rugby. This sports challenge, called the JCI Challenge, will raise money to help the world eradicate malaria.

We may not be in the best of shape, but we are really hoping to push ourselves and your support can go a long way to this end. Knowing that our friends, family, co-workers, and colleagues are behind us will help us surpass our limits!

Thanks in advance for your support and helping to save peoples’ lives.


Saving Lives

Did you know that in Sub-Saharan Africa, malaria is the leading cause of death for children under the age of 5, killing one child every 60 seconds and nearly 700,000 children per year?

Did you also know that since 2008, the seconds keep increasing? In 2008, it was a child every 30 seconds, last year every 45 seconds, now every 60 seconds. That's 500,000 children saved per year from now on thanks to the efforts of people around the world to eradicate malaria. You can be a part of history! Help eradicate malaria today... we're at the tipping point!

Thanks to Nothing But Nets, an initiative of the United Nations Foundation, millions of lives in Africa have been saved through their program to provide long-lasting, insecticide-treated nets to children and families. As a proud and active Nothing But Nets partner, JCI runs a campaign called JCI Nothing But Nets. Through the campaign, JCI members raise funds to send mosquito nets to Africa and educate children and their families on the correct use and care of the nets. While your nation may not be affected by widespread malaria, 40% of people in the world live in countries that are. And they need your help.

So send a net and save a life. Just USD $10 sends a net and protects a family of up to four from this deadly disease.
