BENEFITING: Amref Health Africa
ORGANIZER: Amref Health Africa
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
Over the past six years, I have had the amazing experience of working in Malawi and Tanzania, monitoring earthquakes in the towns and villages surrounding northern Lake Malawi (Nyasa). I am taking on the challenge of running my first marathon, and I have decided to do so in support of the African colleagues and communities that have made this work possible. Amref Health Africa delivers critical health care services across sub-Saharan Africa, with a focus on maternal and child health, infectious disease, and water and sanitation. Last year alone, 201,000 women living in sub-Saharan Africa died from preventable causes in pregnancy and childbirth. On November 6, I will be proud to run my 26.1 miles for Team Amref Health Africa, supporting the training of health workers at all levels and strengthening community health systems. Please give today and assist me in giving back to the good people of Malawi and Tanzania. Thanks!
