THE STORY:

On June 9 and 10, I plan to take part in a competitive sports challenge in Malta with people from around the world. Events include biking, running, volleyball, kayaking, and trekking orientation race. The sports challenge, called the JCI Challenge (http://jcichallenge.org/), will raise money to help the world reach UN Millennium Development Goal #6 and eventually eradicate malaria.

I have set a personal goal to raise $500 to purchase 50 anti-malarial bednets--$100 or 10 bednets for each event.

I may not be in the best of shape, but I’m really hoping to push myself and your support can go a long way to this end.

A reminder during each event that my friends, family, co-workers and colleagues are behind me will help me push my limits!

Thanks in advance for your support :-)

John

PS - 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! 

Residents of malaria-endemic countries need your help and they need it now. There is no time to waste in the battle to stop this devastating disease. The vast majority of deaths occur in Africa, where malaria is a leading killer of children.

 

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 to Africa to protect a family of up to four from the deadly disease.
