BENEFITING: ORGANIZATION FOR YOUTH EMPOWERMENT
EVENT DATE: Sep 28, 2014
I will be running a FULL MARATHON in support of the Organization for Youth Empowerment (OYE). OYE is a Honduran non-profit organization with 501(c)3 status that works to promote educational, leadership, creative and athletic opportunities for Honduras youth. OYE’s goal is to enable young people to be agents of positive social change, equipping them with tools to overcome poverty and to lead Honduras to a better place.
Given all of the issues that Honduran youth face – pressures to immigrate, organized violence, the drug trade – OYE presents a unique alternative for youth to empower themselves and impact their homes, schools and communities.
I will be running 26.2 miles for OYE on September 28, 2014 in Montreal, Canada. My goal is to raise $100 per mile, for a total of $2,620 miles. Your support will help me to cross the finish line, and that help will help OYE. So please, form part of the movement. RACE 4 OYE!
