THE STORY:

 “Because we are all together, united for the cause of education.” - Malala Yousafzai

Dear Friends and Family,

All around the world, young people have mobilized to demand that leaders deliver on their promise to achieve the Millennium Development Goal of universal education by 2015.  Their voices are being heard, but with time running out, 57 million boys and girls around the world are still out of school.

Through petitions they are raising their voices for equality.

Through speeches they are raising their voices for opportunity.

In 11 days it is time that I use my voice.

On September 21st, I will be running the 2014 Cape Town Marathon to support Unlock Foundation’s projects and increase awareness for the millions of children being denied access to education. Running 26.2 miles in South Africa’s “Mother City” will be an incredible opportunity to shine a light on the power that education has to unlock a world of possibilities. I am asking you to join me in my efforts to raise $10,000 for Unlock Foundation and add your voice to this campaign.

I always intended Unlock Foundation to be a small organization with a simple mission: to address the critical educational gaps at our rural partner schools in Namibia and Ghana. At the schools today, it is a moment of great promise. The classroom infrastructure is improving, teachers have new materials and resources for their lessons, students are studying in healthier learning environments, and more children have access to a quality education. But our work is not complete.

While Nelson Mandela is no longer with us, we can honor his legacy of hope, peace, and unity in our own lives, and help ensure that every child has the opportunity to unlock their personal development. With your support we can revive the spirit that lives in each child to transform their school, community, and our world. 

100% of your gift will go directly to Unlock Foundation, and it is also fully tax deductible. With a donation of $100 I will feature your name on my race day t-shirt in South Africa.

With gratitude,

Scott Karrel

Scott - I remembered seeing this post a while back on Facebook. As I was reading more about the Ice Bucket Challenge, I learned that a donation can be made to any charitable cause. Best of luck with the run and your ongoing efforts with this amazing project! Best,Greg 3 years ago

Keep up the good work, Scott! Remember always what RFK said when he gave that great speech in the same city you'll be running in: "Few will have the greatness to bend history itself, but each of us can work to change a small portion of events. It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.” Keep sending out those ripples, buddy. 3 years ago
