It is truly amazing what a small group of dedicated people can do when they care and decide to go all out and out to help others! Nike employees have blown us away with their generosity of time, talent and donations. So far, this group has allowed us to help quite a few children through their kindness.
With the money raised by this team so far, we have sent to our partners in Uganda anti-retroviral medicine to support 272 children for 6 months, antibiotics to support 1,235 children for 6 months and 2 containers of nutritional support to feed 250 children 2 meals per day in Kenya and to support 6000 people through a program known as "Nutrition by Prescription". Oh, and did i mention that they also donated 48 soccer balls for HIV+ children?
Yes, these folks are going to have an amazing time in Tanzania, climbing Kilimanjaro. And, yes, they will enjoy a bit of time in the wonderful continent of Africa. But, more importantly, they are saving lives. Many lives. And, there just aren't enough words to thank them for that.
