BENEFITING: THE FREGENET FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Mar 12, 2011
The Fregenet Foundation is a non-profit 501(c) (3) organization dedicated to creating educational opportunities for impoverished children in Ethiopia.
Its founder, Tafesse Woubshet, is running the L.A. Marathon to raise money for the Fregenet Kidan Lehitsanat, an elementary school in Addis Ababa that provides 240 children with everything they need to succeed--learning, friends, meals, medicine, and care. Neighbors are also welcome in the school's library and health clinic.
