Laura Pyle's Fundraiser:

Run for Kilimanjaro Orphanage

BENEFITING: FUND FOR THE KILIMANJARO ORPHANAGE

EVENT DATE: Dec 31, 2014

Laura Pyle

THE STORY:

My goal is to raise money for the children at the Kilimanjaro Orphanage Centre in Moshi, Tanzania. The orphanage provides a home for about 50 children, many of whom were orphaned as a result of the HIV epidemic in Tanzania.  I visited the orphanage in 2013 and was amazed by the childrens' strength and happiness in the face of adversity.  Please read more about the children and their stories at: http://www.kiliorphanagecentre.org/home/4574561017

In the coming year, the orphanage plans to build a new facility.  The first building to be constructed will be a kitchen/dining room/study area.  This building will need to be in place before the dorms that will house the children can be constructed.  Construction costs for the first phase are estimated at $60,000.  You can help the orphanage reach their goal by sponsoring my run.  On December 31, 2014, I will run in Across the Years, a 24 hour long running event.  My goal is to run at least 100 miles.  Consider donating a small amount per mile; for example, 25 cents per mile x 100 miles = $25.  100% of the money will go to the orphanage - none will go to defray expenses associated wtih the run.  Thank you for your support!
