THE STORY:


I am running in the 2011 NYC Marathon to raise money for The Somarela Fund in memory of Player Crosby. Donations will be used to support the children of AIDS victims in Botswana. My family started the fund as an ongoing tribute to Player who inspired smiles wherever he went, most especially among children.

SOMARELA FUND INC wrote -

The mission of the Somarela Fund is to advance humanitarian work in southern Africa and cultivate global citizenship among youth of diverse backgrounds from the United States and southern Africa through cultural exchange and service-learning trips.

In an increasingly flat world, it is critical to overcome prejudice and misunderstanding, and to recognize we all can play a role in improving conditions for all. Through community service and cooperative experiences we hope to take down barriers between advantaged and disadvantaged youth. We will discover the strengths of those different than each other and offer our services as members of a global community. We see a world where youth of all kinds inspire one another through their diverse strengths. Where they can help each other overcome their own fears and weaknesses and recognize in themselves how important a role they can play in the lives of others. We see a world of opportunity for Batswana AIDS orphans who otherwise might face a life of despair and/or death. We will cultivate relationships with local social service organizations like Bana Ba Letsatsi through direct funding and by providing community service trips to better these organizations and their surrounding communities.
