BENEFITING: Wellbody Alliance
EVENT DATE: May 26, 2013
Dan Kelly is running a marathon on May 26 to raise money for Wellbody Alliance (previously called Global Action Foundation), a nonprofit health clinic in Kono, Sierra Leone.
Wellbody strives provide medical services to the poor, but to build an effective healthcare system in the region that will save lives in a sustainable, equitable and just manner. Wellbody provides cost effective interventions; the clinic needs only $40,000 to operate for the rest of the year. For more information, please visit: http://wellbodyalliance.org
ABOUT THE MARATHON:
Described by Runners World as 'quite possibly the world's most worthwhile marathon', the Sierra Leone Marathon will once again take place amongst the stunning scenery of Makeni, located in northern Sierra Leone. It will take runners through both urban and rural, hard-packed, mud roads. For more information, please visit: http://www.sierraleonemarathon.com
