BENEFITING: New Venture Fund
WHAT IS MY STORY:
On Oct 10th this year I will be lacing up my running shoes with my teammate and friend
Kristi Battalini to run the Chicago Marathon. This will be the 1st of 4 endurance events that we will compete in the next 7 months to raise funds for LTFHC. We realize these back to back races will be a physical, mental and emotional challenge. But after watching the film about the LTFHC and seeing the suffering. These marathons are nothing compared to the unnecessary sacrifices that the 3 million people make daily that have no access to care.
Lake Tanganyika is bordered by four countries. We have decided to honor those countries in this amazing mission by running 3 marathons and a 50k relay race:
1.) For the Democratic Republic of the Congo:
The Chicago Marathon, Chicago IL 10/10/2010
2.) For Tanzania:
The Huff 50k Trail Relay, Huntington IN 12/18/2010
3.) For Burundi:
The Austin Livestrong Marathon, Austin TX 2/20/2010
4.) For Zambia:
The Big Sur International Marathon, Monterey, CA 5/1/2011
We are very excited for this challenge!
Who are we recruiting:
1.) Any Runner, Biker , Swimmer or Athlete that is competing in a race of any kind or length can do so for Team Tanganyika. You can either join Kristi and I in any of the Races above or pick your own event! Or Join our Team as a non athlete and raise $ for an amazing cause!
2.) Just by donating you are cheering us on. Any amount is helpful. Thank You!
