EVENT DATE: Oct 28, 2012
I am running in the Marie Corps Marathon this October (10/28/2012) to raise money and awareness for The HALO Trust. HALO is the world's oldest and largest humanitarian landmine clearance organization. Since 1988, they have set the standard in this sector through technical innovation and robust management. HALO’s Weapons & Ammunition Disposal teams are working or have worked in Abkhazia, Afghanistan, Angola, Bosnia, Burundi, Cambodia, Central African Republic, Chechnya, Colombia, Croatia, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kosovo, Laos, Lebanon, Mozambique, Somaliland, Sri Lanka, Tajikistan, and Vietnam.
Where HALO has cleared minefields and battlefields, farmers are now planting their crops, homes and roads are being rebuilt, and children walk to school, secure in the knowledge that their next step will be a safe one. This is thanks to supporters, like you.
HALO's vision is a Mine Free world in our lifetime – you can help us achieve it!
