Run for FMFM at the Milwaukee Marathon 2019
Hi Everyone - I'm running my very first marathon this April to raise money for Feeding Mouths, Filling Minds (FMFM).
Feeding Mouths, Filling Minds is a small Milwaukee based non-profit organization that partners with orphanages and schools, helping crystallize a vision toward water and food sustainability. FMFM helps fund initial projects ensuring the local community can develop and maintain them.
This fundraiser will help one of FMFM’s projects located in Liberia. Currently, children attend school hungry which consequently affects their ability to concentrate on schoolwork. This project aims to expand the school garden program, which goal is to provide nutritous snacks for children in schools while also improving their knowledge of growing vegetables and teaching them vocational skills. Proceeds from this fundraiser will help establish and develop 12 more school gardens in 10 communities. Produce such as cassava, rice, and vegetables will allow children to have better access to a balanced diet which would enable them good physical and intellectual growth.
A little goes a long way. Please consider donating and help enrich the lives of many children!
