Our runners are helping send nets and save lives through their amazing 26.2 mile marathon - you can help by supporting them!
Nothing But Nets is a global, grassroots campaign to save lives by preventing malaria, a leading killer of children in Africa. Inspired by sports columnist Rick Reilly, hundreds of thousands of people have joined the campaign that was created by the UN Foundation in 2006. Campaign partners include the National Basketball Association’s NBA Cares, The people of The United Methodist Church, and Major League Soccer’s MLS W.O.R.K.S.
Just $10 provides an insecticide-treated bed net that can prevent this deadly disease. To learn more, visit the Nothing But Nets website by clicking here.
Malaria kills. Nets save lives. Send a net. Save a life!
Together, through our marathon and your donations, we can cover a continent. Thanks for your support!
