THE STORY:

DID YOU KNOW?
-4 million newborns worldwide are dying within their first month of life.
-101 million children are currently not attending primary school.
-At least 80% of humanity lives on less than $10 a day.
-Less than 1% of the U.S. federal budget goes towards foreign aid?

This summer I am interning at The Borgen Project, an innovative, national campaign that fights global poverty. We do advocacy work to increase the foreign aid budget and to garner support for crucial poverty-reducing legislation.

On August 2nd, I will be competing in the Grand Ridge Half-Marathon Trail Race, as a fundraiser for The Borgen Project. I am asking my friends and family to support me in my race, by donating $13.00, one dollar for every mile I will run, to The Borgen Project.

Your donation enables us to act as a voice for the world's voiceless; Instead of sponsoring a child, you are sponsoring a process that helps lift millions of people out of extreme poverty. We are a vehicle for large scale, systematic change, but we cannot do our work without your support.

Thirteen dollars. Thirteen miles. Can you join the race?
