BENEFITING: Touch Foundation
ORGANIZER: Touch Foundation
EVENT DATE: Nov 03, 2013
I am running the 2013 NYC Marathon to support the Touch Foundation, an organization working to improve the quantity and quality of essential healthcare in Tanzania. Touch strives to improve the training of healthcare workers as well as the healthcare delivery system in order to ensure care reaches those members of the Tanzanian population who need it most.
Since its founding in 2004, Touch has helped graduate 209 physicians—roughly 10% of Tanzania’s physician workforce—and over 1,500 allied health care professionals such as nurses, radiologists and lab technicians, who over the course of their careers will care for and save thousands of precious lives.
My goal is to raise $3,000. I am excited and proud to run for—and shed light on—such a worthy organization and would greatly appreciate any contribution and support. With your help, Touch Foundation will continue to touch and save many lives in sub-Saharan Africa. Thanks so much in advance for support!!
Lots of Love,
