"Team USA": we're a group of friends & colleagues working at the U.S. Embassy in Beijing who got the idea to raise funds for China's orphans while doing a run on the Great Wall. We hope you will support us!
Don: My goal is to do a 7.5K run (about 5mi) on the Great Wall to raise at least $2000 for special needs Chinese orphans. I haven’t participated in an organized run in decades and I’ve never done a run on the Great Wall. I’m also coming back from knee surgery, not to mention fighting the aging process. :-) But I’m trying to prove something to myself and to everyone over 40 out there: you can make a comeback! Most importantly, I’m reminding myself that whatever health issues I have, they pale in comparison to what China’s neediest orphans confront every day. If we have your support, I know it’ll give me the edge I need to cross the finish line! Thank you!
