The MEB Foundation wrote -
I have gained a lot of great benefits, friendships and support throughout the years. And now, I feel I have the platform to give back to the communities I have benefited from and am in a position to assist. I have created the MEB Foundation, to support health, education and fitness initiatives around the world, but with a specific focus on the USA and my native country of Eritrea. As you will see in my book, Run To Overcome, health, education and fitness have been the cornerstones of my success in and outside of running.
