Last Saturday, August 30th, more than 1,000 runners in 39 locations across 15 countries joined the first annual Amazing Maasai Global Run. From London to Alaska, "Donate Your Run Day" became a truly GLOBAL movement.
Heartfelt thanks to everyone who joined and/or contributed to the fundraising efforts. Between this year's Amazing Maasai Marathon in Kenya and the Global Run, more than $20,000 was raised that day. In Kenya, it costs just $400/year to keep a girl in secondary school, so this total will go a long way to giving new 4-year scholarships for our 2015 intake. By donating, you have helped save more smart, spirited young ladies from childhood marriage, and given them much brighter futures to strive towards.
We have put together a lil' movie (below) to celebrate the spirit of the event and inspire an even bigger version for 2015! Enjoy - and share it with your friends!
... And for those who've asked: Yep!!!! We are still very much welcoming donations online here, so please contribute if you can, and get your buddies to chip in! Together, we are educating girls in Kenya.
