Instead of going on vacation this year, Beth McCarthy is volunteering to work full time for two weeks with the Flying Doctors of America on their annual medical mission in Peru. On Sunday May 4, Beth will be doing laps in order to raise funds for her volunteer trip.
You can sponsor her by doing one of two things: donating a one-time amount of money, OR by donating for every ¼ mile lap that she is able to complete on this one day from sunrise to sunset (the goal is to complete at least 50 laps without stopping)!
The Flying Doctors of America is a well-respected 501c(3) non-profit charity providing medical care around the world for over 20 years. The focus is on the poorest of the world's poor who live in conditions that are difficult for most Americans to imagine. This mission to Peru will bring medical care to several remote communities of the Amazon.
All donations are tax deductible. If you'd like to get involved but prefer to not use this site to donate, that's okay too! Just get in touch with Beth to set it up off-line.
