Jenny Neill's Fundraiser:

Jenny Neill runs for JavaJog for Coffee Women in the Congo

THE STORY:

I'm running to give hope to coffee women in the Congo!

I've been a coffee reporter for nearly two years now. It's impossible to cover what happens in this industry and remain unaware of the challenges facing the people who grow the fruit--coffee cherries--that so many of us derive pleasure from every day. 

I've also long been a supporter of efforts to give women tools with which to succeed. It's why I have volunteered with a number organizations over the years that have been dedicated to having a positive impact on women's lives, and on the lives of at-risk young people here in the U.S. 

And so, despite barely calling myself a runner, I've signed up for Java Jog.

The goal for the Seattle 2014 JavaJog is to raise $30,000 for women in coffee farming communities in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The organizers remind us that if 100 runners raise at least $300 that goal will be met, so that's what I've set as my goal. 

The Coffee Quality Insititute (CQI) is acting as the fiscal agent for disbursing funds raised. Learn more about the race and the groups that came together to organize it here.
