BENEFITING: CHILDRENS HOUSE INTERNATIONAL
Each CHI Team member is dedicated to fundraising in the amount of $2,000 or more above any race related expenses.
CHI’s Bole project supports 150 families in the Bole area of Addis Ababa. In this area, families do not have access to clean drinking water, adequate food or clothing. CHI is committed to provide these things and much more, such as educational materials and medical care. The goal is to help break the cycle of poverty so that families may stay together and thus preventing children from becoming relinquished to an orphanage.
In addition to the run, Team CHI members will devote time to our humanitarian projects in Ethiopia.This will include a day at the Bole project, helping with the distribution of clean drinking water, food and other supplies. You will interact directly with the sponsored families and children, and meet those involved in the daily hands on work. The next day’s highlights include a visit to the Awassa orphanage. While there, they will be able to help with hands on work (painting, cleaning, etc.) and also spend valuable time with the orphans there, providing one-on-one personal attention that they desperately need.
Contact Alicia Gaston if you want to become part of TEAM CHI. We will participate in this and other races throughout the year. If you are not a runner, you can still participate in the fundraising and humanitarian projects; we will just plan other tours/projects for you during your stay.
If you have ANY questions, please don’t hesitate to let us know.
