THE STORY:

Our Story

As many of you know, Ryan and I worked with Grassroot Soccer (GRS) during our Peace Corps service. They are an amazing organization who has developed a toolkit for Peace Corps volunteers to teach adolescents about HIV, Malaria and Gender-Based Violence through the universal language of soccer. We saw first hand how impactful this progam was in our community (Kombolcha, Ethiopia), and now have the opportunity to support Grassroot Soccer as endurance runners in the upcoming Tough Mudder event in October. We would like to raise $2,500, which will all go directly to GRS and will be used to provide the training materials and equipment to other currently serving Peace Corps volunteers around the world. 
Please help us reach this goal--any amount you can provide will be highly appreciated, both from us, GRS and other volunteers!

Grassroot Soccer

Grassroot Soccer (GRS) is an international adolescent health organization that educates, inspires and mobilizes young people to overcome their greatest health challenges and live healthier, more productive lives. GRS uses the power of soccer to connect young people with the mentors, information, and health services they need to thrive, and empowers adolescents to make educated choices about pressing health challenges such as HIV & AIDS, sexual health, gender-based violence, and malaria. GRS's evidence-based programs, led by trained local Coaches, incorporate soccer into dynamic lessons about health and wellness that engage young people and break down cultural barriers. With proven results and a constant focus on research and innovation, GRS has reached over 1.2 million young people in nearly 50 countries with health education.

Tough Mudder

Tough Mudder is a team-oriented 10-12 mile (18-20 km) obstacle course designed to test physical strength and mental grit. Tough Mudder puts camaraderie over finisher rankings and is not a timed race but a team challenge that allows participants to experience exhilarating, yet safe, world-class obstacles they won't find anywhere else.
