Since 2011, I have competed in triathlons and other athletic events to benefit girl’s education in Malawi. On September 7th, I'll be joined by two of my friends - David Moore and Matt Gamser - along with the rest of the AGE Africa Ride for Malawi team. We will bike 100 km (62-miles) through the streets of Washington, DC to help raise $100,000 for AGE Africa.
The course is challenging but not as challenging compared to the ten kilometers a girl in Malawi walks each day to attend school.
With your support, AGE Africa will provide girls in Malawi access to education and the tools to grow their self-esteem, leadership skills, and set goals to finish their education and continue to tertiary education.
Since 2005, AGE Africa has provided over 300 four-year secondary school scholarships, 2500 girls with CHATS after-school programming, and 66 starter packages for tertiary education. The results are promising compared to the Malawi national average of 6% of young women hold a secondary school degree and less than 1% graduate from university.
AGE Africa exists to break barriers that would otherwise keep girls in Malawi out of school which is why I am doing the Ride for Malawi. Join my fundraising efforts by clicking the "Join" button on my CrowdRise page or donate by clicking the "Donate" button. Your efforts no matter the amount will directly impact the life of a girl in Malawi.
I look forward to hopefully seeing you on the course, Saturday, September 7, 2019.
