Hey there!

Just wanted to touch base with you and the rest of the generous folks who contributed to our Amazing Girls campaign with a quick update. The race I did in Kenya, plus the "global run" (a virtual worldwide race in October) raised over $66,000 towards tuition for Maasai girls in rural Kenya this year. Wow!

A volunteer-only organization, every dollar goes towards tuition. With tuition costs at US$500/year, our efforts have enabled more than 130 young Maasai women to continue their boarding-school education who would otherwise face a very different (and difficult) life. THANK YOU!

You helped my team, "team Lucy" rise to the top, we're one of the top-3 donors this year to AGP, the Amazing Girls Project. The young women we met in Kenya are indeed amazing, and grateful - and we are making a significant difference in a culture where access to education is still a men-first opportunity. In addition to the young students, we also met four women who are currently enrolled in University in Nairobi, having had their primary schooling covered by AGP. They are studying science, medicine and natural resource management and are certain to contribute much to their communities in the future.

I'm sending this via Crowdrise, and they don't let you attach photos - I'd love to show you some pics of the classrooms, students and amazing girls we helped out. Dan put a few shots on Facebook but they don't do justice.

At any rate, I can't thank you enough - THANK YOU, THANK YOU for your generosity and support!
