Mel created this fundraiser to commemorate -THE GIRL EFFECT- Mel will compete in a half iron, a man triathlon -1.9km swim, 90km cycle, 21.2km run taking place on Saturday May 04, 2013.
Here's what Mel has to say about it:
As far as being a 'girl' goes, I am one of the lucky ones. I have the freedom to do and achieve anything I set my mind to. My life has been opportunity, choice and power. With commitment, passion and determination, even though I am a girl, I have the freedom to complete this challenge. I want the same opportunity for girls all over the world who simply want an education and already have drive , motivation and conviction to achieve. www.girleffect.org
