BENEFITING: EAST AFRICA CHILDRENS HOPE INC
EVENT DATE: Jul 16, 2017
On July 16th, 2017, I will be competing in the Life Time Tri New York City Triathlon to raise money for East Africa Children's Hope. It is an Olympic Distance race consisting of a 1500m swim, a 40k bike, and a 10k run. This year, the money I raise will go toward: 1) Purchasing land to expand the agricultural capacity of the Good Hope Initiative school and orphanage in Uganda to help them become self-sufficient and to serve as an agricultural education center for the school and community. 2) Secondary school sponsorships for graduates of Kenya's Upendo Children's Home and School and the Good Hope primary schools with a focus on continuing education for girls.
