BENEFITING: ORGANIZATION FOR YOUTH EMPOWERMENT
EVENT DATE: Nov 15, 2014
Mileage Tracker: 274
For the fourth time in five years, we are running the Richmond Half Marathon to raise money and awareness for the Organization For Youth Empowerment (OYE) based in El Progreso Honduras. To date you’ve helped us raise over $6000!
This year’s Race4OYE is especially salient. Since October 2013 more than 16,000 unaccompanied youth from Honduras, fleeing violence, have been caught crossing the Mexican border.
OYE’s work, “to form socially conscious youth leaders through community action programs that break cycles of poverty,” is transformational and your dollars go directly to support scholarships for individual youth and the programs they enhance.
Thank you for your generosity!
Matt and Mary Clay
