BENEFITING: CIRCLE OF SISTERHOOD FOUNDATION INC
EVENT DATE: Oct 09, 2011
On October 9, 2011 I'll be running my first marathon, the Chicago Marathon, in honor of the Circle of Sisterhood Foundation & in support of education for women and girls worldwide. I've been fundraising since early spring, but I'm using Crowdrise for one last push in the week leading up to the marathon. My goal is to raise $500 in one week for this incredible cause.
The mission of the Circle of Sisterhood Foundation is to leverage the collective wisdom and influence of sorority women to support entitles around the world that remove educational barriers for girls and women, uplifting them from poverty and oppression.
For the past year, I've served the Foundation in the role of "Connector", introducing people to the Foundation's mission, vision, and philanthropic projects. It's been a true blessing to be involved with this inspiring group of women and witness first hand the reality that just $50 can send a young girl in a developing country to school for a year, including books and uniforms.
