My trip to Kenya introduced me to such beautiful, smart children!

Size 550x415 img 3702

Many of these children will not live to the age of 5.

The garbage city of Dandora is where these people live and work.

We were given a tour of the neighborhood these children lived in.

Size 550x415 img 4007

This is a horrid place to raise a child, broken glass, garbage, human sewage fill the alleyways.

Size 550x415 img 4022

Such a sweet little girl, hanging on to a filthy rag doll! I wanted to take her with me.

These sweethearts scavange through the garbage, looking for food.

We are on a journey to run a half marathon in all 50 states and want to make a difference in the world while doing it.

We are asking for your support to donate $10 each time we complete a race. At a rate of about one race per month, we should complete our journey in about 4 years. If you commit to donate $10/race, that is only a total of $500 over the course of 4 years. Our goal is to have 50 people commit to this journey with us by donating. That would amount to $25,000 raised - which would provide over 108,000 meals or, enough to feed nearly 300 kids for a full year.
