New York Marathon 4th November 2018 - my first marathon
I am taking the opportunity whilst running the 42.195 km to raise money for The Hunger Project Australia, an incredible charity that the Mercer Family Foundation strongly supports. Their innovative and holistic approach to ending hunger in rural communities in India, Africa and Bangladesh is inspiring. Their approach starts by empowering women, as they bear the majority of responsibility for meeting the basic needs of the family. Studies show that women who are empowered and earn their own income spend 90% of it on their families.
Your tax-deductible donation will go a long way to help end hunger and poverty. It has the power to help educate and train women living in hunger and povery in financial literacy, business skills, practical job skills and entrepreneurship.
Thank you for your support, and wish me luck.
