BENEFITING: TESFA FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: TESFA FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Oct 07, 2012
For many years, running has been an important part of my life. As I prepare to run the Twin Cities Marathon this fall, I've challenged myself to focus my training and race to supporting a small Twin Cities based foundation dedicated to creating opportunity and hope for families and communities in Ethiopia.
No contribution is too small! We appreciate and thank you for any support you can offer.
A bit more information on the Tesfa Foundation is below and here.
Tesfa means hope in Amharic.
Our mission is to expand opportunities for children and youth in parts of Ethiopia where the necessary resources to build self-reliance are inadequate. We strengthen families and communities in ways that make for sustainable networks to properly support children and youth.
We build schools, train teachers, supply educational needs, support a running club, empower teenagers to determine their futures and partner with some seriously smart folks.
We change lives.
