Seven more days to go!!!

I start running 4 red ribbon next week Saturday and the support that I have already received has me very excited!! The weather in Chicago right now is perfect for running and I am hoping to make the most of it before winter rolls in and I have to run on the treadmill.

The countdown has begun!
I forgot to mention in my previous post that I shall start counting my miles as of Sept 4th. I got my first donation and it is so fulfilling to know that I am one step closer in helping a child get the education they deserve! I thank you Afzal on behalf of Peak4Poverty for your generous donation!

Karibu! Join me in my latest endeavor to run 104 miles in 8.4 weeks to raise $1,004. Why am I doing this? To promote awareness of the millions of AIDS orphans in Africa that lack the basic necessities such as a good education.

HIV/AIDS is the greatest epidemic that
Africa faces. Did you know that a stunning 13 million out of the 15 million AIDS orphans worldwide are in Africa? That one in five adults in sub-Saharan Africa is HIV positive!
I along with several other Peak4Poverty enthusiasts have a personal goal to help raise money for the AIDS orphans. You can follow their progress on

The money that I raise will be donated to AIDS orphanages and will be put towards buying books, school supplies and paying tuition fees.
Every dollar donated takes us one step closer in helping the less fortunate!

Cheers for visiting my blog and stay posted as I relay my progress with y'all.
