I am running the 2013 NYC Marathon to raise funds for KIck4Life. K4L is a non-profit organization dedicated to the fight against the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Lesotho. Kick4Life runs grassroots programs to educate youth about HIV/AIDS using the transformative power of soccer.
In addition, Kick4Life implements social enterprise programs to help get disadvantaged Basotho youth off the streets and back into school and/or vocational courses. More notably, their Women4Women program aims to provide vulnerable young women access to health treatment, career guidance, and internship placements.
Overall, I have seen the wonderful impact that Kick4Life and its initiatives have on the communities that it works in. I am proud to be running this year's marathon on behalf of such a great organization and I thank you for your support!
