The Mississippi Challenge
The Director of the International School Yangon (ISY), Gregory Hedger, and his son, Max, are going to attempt to canoe the entire length of the Mississippi River; 2,400 miles!
Funds raised will be to support two organizations that the school partners with. One is United World Schools which ISY has already partnered with to build a school in Myanmar. Each year ISY raises money to support the school and money raised from this challenge will go towards ISY's annual financial commitment.
The other organization is the Care for the Least Centre which is an orphanage in Yangon. Funds raised from this challenge will go towards a new access road, a transformer to allow them to have electricity and a harvester to harvest the rice they grow for food.
Please note that any donations made are tax deductible in the US and that anyone making donations of $1,000 or more can opt to have their name and/or company logo placed on Gregory Hedger's blog.
