Keeping Promises - Liberia

by Jason Scalzo

Supporting: Run Liberia Campaign for Save More Kids, Inc.


Campaign has ended.


Starting today April 20, I will being running a marathon (a total of 26 miles) by Jun 1, 2022, to support the advancements of Save More Kids, the Youth Boxing Programs (e.g. the purchase an official Boxing Ring) and all the important initiatives underway.    

In addition, I also pledge to incorporate 4,775 punches per week, until Jun 1, 2022, which is the exact mileage from my house to Monrovia, Liberia.  (Just because) 

Liberia is a beautiful country filled with beautiful and loving people.  My time there - with the people/children - was the highlight of my life.   My passion towards the country came with promises and with your help we can get closer to reaching those goals. 

Save More Kids, a US based 501(c)3 nonprofit operating in Liberia, West Africa, is organizing Run Liberia; a half marathon (13.1 miles / 21 KM) in the Panta District of Liberia, with the goal of raising approximately $400,000 to build a fortified road that will connect the village of Garmu, and the surrounding twenty-seven villages, to a main paved thoroughfare. Currently, the over 30,000 residents in the region traverse a mangled patchwork of dirt (and often mud) roads to reach outlying villages and cities. The lack of reliable transportation routes severely limits commerce and intrastate trade, inhibits access to medical care, and contributes to a cycle of poverty that could otherwise be disrupted.
