THE STORY:

WHAT IS GOOD, Y'ALL?! I decided it's time to kick it up a notch and do the dang thing.. ATX Marathon here I come! Being my first marathon EVER, I want to MAKE IT COUNT! I've joined Team UNICEF to combine training and a cause because I can't think of anything more encouraging to push me through the milage of training and race day than changing a child's life for the better. UNICEF is an outstanding, globally recognized, non-profit dedicated to preservation of children's human rights through the power of fundraising, advocacy, and education. Founded in 1946, after WWII, UNICEF provided children of Europe with food, clothing and healthcare in the midst of famine and disease. Today, the organization continues to promote the well being of children with the help of donors and partnerships in 192 countries worldwide. Domestic initiatives include End Trafficking, UNICEF Tap Project, and my favorite.. UNICEF Kid Power, a program that encourages children in the U.S. to get active and #makemoves to provide food for malnourished children in undeveloped countries. Read about it here, http://unicefkidpower.org/about. This foundation has consistently been highly rated in transparency and accountability (I did plenty of research) with an expense ratio of 90%, meaning, for every dollar donated to the U.S. Fund 90 cents are spent on life saving intervention. All donations are 100% tax deductible as well. I've set a goal to raise $1,000 by February 19th, 2018, this will provide 20 units of RUFT (Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Food) to treat 20 cases of Severe Acute Malnutrition. I hope and encourage you to join me in my efforts to MAKE MOVES and save lives, no contribution will go unrecognized.
