Run for Laikipia
Organized by: Ashley Blazer
EVENT DATE May 21, 2016
Laikipia Community Empowerment Centre is a community development organization that supports underprivileged children in central Kenya in their educational and vocational endeavors. There are many children in Laikipia and greater Kenya who are unable to attend secondary school due to lack of funding. This is where we need your help - let's raise money to help more children access the education they deserve.
My teammates and I will be running the Brooklyn Half Marathon on May 21st in honor of Peter Muteru (pictured above), a previous recipient of LCEC's scholarship support program who graduated secondary school and is now entering his third year of university, where he is studying finance and business management. As a celebration of Peter's achievements, we are raising money with the hope that will be able to provide more Kenyan children with the tools they need to achieve their dreams.
In Kenya, a little bit goes a long way - one year of secondary tuition costs just 600 USD. Do your part - help educate a Kenyan child today!
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
