Emilsa created this fundraiser to commemorate Antorchas de Independencia, a marathon for carrying the freedom torch taking place on Sunday September 15, 2013.
Here's what Emilsa has to say about it:
On the 15 de septiembre, Guatemalan Independence Day, the students from all over Guatemala participate in a marathon to bring the "antorcha", the torch of freedom, to their school. Support the students of the Instituto Nacional Educacion Basica, Aldea Pavit, San Juan Comalapa, Chimaltenango, Guatemala in this marathon by making a donation to the Kateri Tekakwitha Fund's scholarship program for students of "Basico", junior high. As director of the school, I know they will appreciate it!
