BENEFITING: Dwankhozi Hope

EVENT DATE: Aug 23, 2013

THE STORY:

Dear Friends and Family,

In less than a week, three family members (Brett Ballbach, Matt MacLean, and Marc Maclean) will join a team to participate in the longest relay race in the United States. Our team of 12 will run 200 miles from Mt. Hood in Oregon to the Pacific Ocean. The main reason for committing to this task is to raise money for our continued support of a rural school in Zambia. Last year, Brett and Matt were able to complete the journey and raise close to $2,000! These donations helped expand our existing solar project to the nearby schools,  as well as develop solar reading rooms for students living in nearby villages. This has allowed children to gather in the evenings in order to study and improve their academic performance.

This year, we are hoping to raise funds to support the construction of a health clinic at the school. The students face many obstacles in their day-to-day lives. The biggest might be lack of access to quality healthcare. Malaria is among the many other neglected diseases children suffer from, and it takes an entire day to travel to and from the nearest clinic. Our hope is that by building a clinic at the school, it will allow these students to live healthy, productive lives, and not be limited in their drive for education by absenteeism, due to illness.

We would be grateful if you would consider supporting our efforts in this race either through thoughts & prayers or in the form of a donation. It’s a privilege for us to stretch ourselves physically as we are reminded of the day-to-day endurance that the Dwankhozi community has shown us. Thank you again for your past support and your thoughtful consideration of walking (or running!) with us as we help the Dwankhozi community break the cycle of poverty thru education! The race begins Aug 23rd - next stop: making it to the ocean!

Sincerely,

Brett, Matt, and Marc
