WHAT'S THE GOAL? Runners and walkers of all ages commit to being part of a Boise area team that will complete four half-marathon races in four weeks. Before and during the races, participants fundraise for our cause by asking family, friends, and businesses to sponsor their efforts to help children suffering with HIV/AIDS in India. They also spend lots of time training to prepare their bodies for the huge physical challenge of completing 4 half marathons in 4 weeks ( 13.1 x 4= 52.4 miles of love).
WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO? Fiftytwo.four is a pending 501(c)3 community based non-profit organization. We operate solely on lots of amazing volunteers and donations. Any overhead costs (which are very minimal) are covered through designated donations of our board of directors. We are a very grassroots organization full of lots of amazing people that just simply want to use their lives to make a difference in lives of a lot of beautiful children in India that need our help. 100% of the money that we raise is sent to the organization that we support in India. Our money is specifically designated for the endless needs of HIV/AIDS orphans. It covers anything and everything pertaining to the needs of HIV/AIDS orphans but is designated each year based on where the greatest need is. Some ways that our funds have been spent in the past 10 years: medicals needs, nutritious foods, education costs, medicine, building costs for new HIV/AIDS facilities, vehicles to transport the children.
52.4 MILES OF LOVE! I've made a commitment to complete these four races. I'm asking you to partner with me to make a difference in the lives of some very precious people. I know that completing the runs will be challenging, but I'll be racing for a purpose much greater than myself and that is my sole motivation. Through the generous support of friends, family, and businesses, runners were able to raise over $840,000 in 11 years! All race fees are paid by me, so 100% of your donation goes directly to those suffering. Let's work together to make this year's effort our best yet.
