BENEFITING: AMAZING MAASAI GIRLS PROJECT
ORGANIZER: AMAZING MAASAI GIRLS PROJECT
EVENT DATE: Sep 17, 2016
Join Team Seattle, headed up by Mary Schacht & Jenni Laszlo, for the GLOBAL RUN 2016. We are donating our run to support girls' education in Kenya, and we would love your support!
Our team goal is to raise $2,000, enough to support another bright young lady through all four year of high school, full-board, in Kenya.
ABOUT THE GLOBAL RUN:
In 2015, more than 1,200 in 48 locations worldwide joined us in donating a run to support girls' education in Kenya. This year, we're aiming higher!
100% of donations received go to the Amazing Maasai Girls Project, a volunteer-run US-registered nonprofit supporting girls through secondary school in Kenya.
Since 2011 more than 60 girls from Maasai communities in Laikipia, Kenya, have received four-year scholarships. By staying in school, our Amazing Girls are given the support they need to find their own voices, to say no to childhood marriage (a popular Maasai custom), and to pursue their ambitions. Education transforms the girl's futures, benefiting their families, community, and the wider economy.
Together, Team Seattle can support the high school education of another girl, who would start in January 2017.
Top fundraisers will receive some very cool prizes, including a year's subscription to RockMyRun music app for runners.
