Karen and Rob running for Ray of Hope
Running for Kenyans
Karen and Rob are delighted that you are checking out our fundraising page. We chose Ray of Hope because they are a small charity with very low expenses, so almost all your donation goes right to programs helping Kenyans.

Read about all the reasons we chose this charity at: http://blog.infoadvisors.com/index.php/2011/05/31/sqlrun-support-rob-and-karen-in-the-portland-half-marathon/

Those who sponsor us get a special shout out on Twitter and a sponsor graphic on our blog.

Our training began in April and we'll be training all summer. The race is the weekend before PASS Summit, so we are happy that we can include this in our travels to Seattle. We're calling this the #SQLRun, as other PASS Summit attendees will be joining us.

Any amount you can donate will be appreciated.

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!!!
