Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!
The mission of Oasis for Orphans is to rescue and nuture the orphans of Kenya. To develop them physically, spiritually, socially and economically to enable them a better future. (www.oasisfororphans.org). Paired with Oasis for Orphans for the past 10 years Team Oasis has been fundraising and running race events to support this amazing cause. Oasis for Orphans along with fundraising efforts of Team Oasis, has already established an orphange for 50 children and is currently in the ground breaking stages building a second facility for an additional 50 children.
Last year I joined up with Team Oasis and participated in two half marathon events. This was my first experience running for a cause greater than my own personal accomplishment and what an experience it was! I was overwhelmed by the support offered by fellow teammates and spectators of Team Oasis; but mostly by the love and inspiration sent by the orphans to all the Team Oasis runners. These children are so thankful and grateful for the opportunitiy of life and their love for us is unconditional and pure. They continually share their love and gratitude through pictures letters and videos.
Last year so many of you (family and friends) helped me support this incredible mission and generously contributed to my fundraising efforts. Bringing my total in over $1300.00 in only a month's time.
Once again, I would like to ask for your consideration helping me reach my 2014 fundraising goal of $2600.00. I've not only increased my monitary goal, but also my running/ mileage goals. To date, I've run two 1/2 marathon events for Team Oasis and am currently training for The Bank of America CHICAGO MARATHON (OCT 12).
