BENEFITING: MALARIA NO MORE
ORGANIZER: MALARIA NO MORE
EVENT DATE: Nov 04, 2012
Every minute in Africa a child under 5 dies from a complication associated with Malaria.
Growing up, I was blessed with unparalleled healthcare. As a post-graduate entering into my first full year as a young adult, I am determined to help children who didn't enter into this world with the same access to doctors, vaccines, and overall care.
Running has always empowered my mind, body, and spirit. For my FIRST FULL marathon on November 4, 2012, I will run to empower the minds, bodies, and spirits of the children your dollars will protect from such a vicious (yet treatable) disease. The support I received from my friends and family when I joined team MNM for the NYC half was unimaginable...it's only because of you that I was ready to take the next step (both philanthropically & physically).
No amount is too small. If everyone can donate even $1, think of what we can do together. Thank you so much for your support!!
