Marathon Team For EAC
A team for EDUCATING AFRICAS CHILDREN
"Marathon Team For EAC" is running the Chicago Marathon to help Educating Africa's Children bring education to Uganda
The Marathon Team for EAC consists of four members this year! Last year's sole member, Robin Dusek, will be joined by Lisa Grant, Dave Grant, and Dan Powers to raise money for Educating Africa's Children. This marks the first marathon for Dan and Dave and second for Robin and Lisa.
Educating Africa's Children will use the money raised to continue its work with Bujengwe Community Nursery & Primary School and Dusek Child Care Centre. In the past, EAC has used donations to start Dusek Child Care Centre, bring permanent classroom blocks to Dusek Child Care Centre, assist with ongoing costs (such as teacher salaries, food for lunch and breakfast, firewood, and books). Bujengwe has been assisted by EAC since 2009. EAC has built classrooms and a pit latrine for Bujengwe, provided money for teacher salaries, books, classroom furniture, and land used for bananas used by the school for lunches.
All of the members of EAC's marathon team have been training intensely and will continue to train to run the Chicago marathon in honor of the children at the schools in Uganda. We hope to raise at least $7,000 to continue EAC's mission in Uganda.
