We are donating a run to support GIRLS EDUCATION in Kenya! Join us for Year 6 of the GLOBAL RUN on Saturday, September 28th, 2019! This is Year 3 for Team Dallas!
The GLOBAL RUN supports Girls Education at the secondary level for the Maasai Tribes in Northern Kenya, where families live in tribal villages of mud and stick huts. They are shepherds for goats and cows, cook on campfires, and carry water from remote well sites. There are no paved roads or sewers or plumbing.
All children attend school in their community areas through the 8th grade. Secondary education (years 9th - 12th grades) is only available to boys; so girls stay at home and cook and clean, and become mothers at 14-15 years old. High School education for girls is only available through privately funded Secondary Schools, supported with YOUR DONATIONS! It only costs $500 per girl per year to provide tuition, school supplies, uniforms, housing and food.
Donations of $100 or more entitle the Donor/Runner to a free 2019 GLOBAL RUN Tech T-Shirt!
The Amazing Maasai Girls Project is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization; so all contributions are Tax Deductible.
Join Tom Mason, Team Dallas City Captain and a great friend of the Amazing Maasai Girls Project, for a casual, inclusive Fun Run or walk for this AMAZING cause. Bachman Lake is an ideal venue for a 5k run (slower runners and walkers do not fear; we will not leave anyone behind!). All proceeds go directly to school tuition and costs for smart young ladies from the Maasai communities in rural Kenya.
In 2018, more than $45,000 was raised for the Amazing Maasai Girls Project (over $20,000 from Team Dallas alone!) and 10 fresh-faced young ladies entered High School (secondary school) as a result of the donation of dollars and runs. Since the first Global Run, we have helped over 100 Maasai Girls achieve their dream of going to High School! Let's make 2019 just as EPIC! For Team Dallas, all costs have been underwritten, so your donations go DIRECTLY to Girls Education!
RUN DETAILS: 5k Fun Run. No timing chips. Its just for the Maasai Girls!
MEETING PLACE: Bachman Lake Pavilion, 3500 Northwest Hwy
RACE TIME: 8:00 am start, Saturday, Sep 28th, 2019
