BENEFITING: MKOMBOZI INC
EVENT DATE: Jul 14, 2013
On July 14th - I will take on the Victoria Falls Marathon in Zimbabwe. While this will be a challenge for myself, it is nothing compared to the challenges that some of Tanzania's most vulnerable youth are faced with every day. Since beginning my adventure in Tanzania, I have been working for an amazing organization called Mkombozi that works to empower children, engage families and enable communities.
I have had the privilege to work with inspiring locals to help reshape the landscape of children's rights in Tanzania and spend time with the street-involved children that we serve. Each child has a story that is both enduring and heartbreaking. These children have persevered through many challenges and want to create better futures for themself and that for me is remarkable. They have inspired me to run.
And now - I hope that my friends and family can support me by taking the time to donate today. Every dollar counts and can help give these children a shot at a brighter future.
