Patricia Julianelle, our Director of Program Advancement and Legal Affairs, will be doing an Olympic-distance triathlon in the oldest and driest desert in the world-- the Atacama Desert in Chile, to raise money for our Youth Leadership and Scholarship Program.
Goal: To raise a dime for every meter she will swim, bike or run -- that’s a total of $5,645. And if she reaches her goal, we have secured a challenge grant to match it, dollar for dollar, bringing the total amount provided to our scholars and young leaders to $11,290.
Every penny of every donation will go directly to our scholars or young leaders to help them complete their education-- to buy books for school, pay for a car repair to get to work, pay for a trip to the dentist or counselor, buy food or hygiene items, get a cell phone or laptop, or whatever they need to persist in higher education.
We hope you will help us reach this goal!
