Great Success in 2009 at the Leavenworth Half Marathon!

Hello friends and family,

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page as I train and run the Portland Half Marathon for Ray of Hope.

Last year, as a Sole Mate for Girls on the Run, with your help, I raised more than $300 for my local GOTR chapter. Those fund helped a girl in the Puget Sound attend 10 empowering and educational weeks of the after school program.

This year, I chose to help girls across our world. As I partner with the Ray of Hope Foundation, an Oregon-based international non-profit working to improve many aspects of life in underserved communities in Kenya. One of their new grassroots projects is a Girls' Empowerment Program that will address the needs of girls and young women in the communities where Ray of Hope is currently work.

Please join me with a gift today as we work towards a healthier and happier world for all girls, women, boys and men!
Thank you all.


Join the Ray of Hope Marathon Team in “supporting the children of Kenya one step at a time”.

The Ray of Hope Foundation is dedicated to creating grassroots community based projects that improve education, infrastructure and health services for children and their families in Kenya. Our projects are guided by the aspirations and self-identified needs of the communities in our project areas. We provide secondary school sponsorship, train traditional birth attendants and health workers, assist women to start microfinance programs and improve infrastructure (wells, classrooms, clinics, school supplies and medical equipment/supplies).

The Ray of Hope is an official Portland Marathon Charity. Contributions sponsoring a runner/walker of the Ray of Hope Marathon Team directly support our innovative grassroots programming serving hundreds of children and their families in both the urban slums and rural areas of Kenya.

Ray of Hope- Compassion Transformed Into ACTION!!!
