Kristin Schaen and I decided to take on the challenge of running the Monteray Bay Half-Marathon in November, in support of EMpower - The Emerging Markets Foundation!
EMpower supports local organizations in emerging market countries that provide at-risk young people (ages 10-24) with the tools and resources they need to live healthy, productive lives. Many young people in these communities are being left behind, lacking access to education, job training and healthcare, and facing discrimination, poverty or violence. To improve opportunities for these young people, EMpower funds programs ranging from agricultural training in rural Argentina, to mobile classrooms for migrant children in China, to health education in Ghana.
Over the last 18 years, EMpower has directly impacted the lives of over 460,000 young people, and touched the lives of over 1 million more. Your donation will go to supporting even more youth to create brighter futures for themselves.
Learn more about EMpower's work at www.empowerweb.org.
Any donation to EMpower and in support of my race is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your support!
