BENEFITING: WHEELS FOR HUMANITY
Three years ago I said that I would never do another half marathon, but thanks to a great running partner and a cause to fight for, I'll be running the Rock n Roll Half Marathon in Brooklyn this October. The right to free movement is a basic human right that many disabled people in developing nations are not afforded. In many countries, disabled persons are left to live on the floor, pushed into the streets, or are abandoned by their families. The lack of access to wheelchairs causes them to be a burden on their families and unable to access work or education. Wheels for Humanity (part of UCP) provides wheelchairs in developing nations to give disabled people the opportunity to actively participate and contribute to their communities. I'll be matching donations and I hope you can help me provide wheelchairs to those in other nations. Thank you so much!
