I'm tired. I'm sore, but I'm happy! Earlier today I finished Grandma's Marathon in 4:11 (80 degrees of brutal heat), and now the kids in JiaYou get their new school ! As of today, $6,500 has been pledged! Take a look below to see me during my run, and post race (with my wife who beat me by 1/2 hour!)
However, my Run for China's Children is only the start of the story ... This September, I will trek into the mountains of southern China and personally deliver books to JiaYou's new school. After all, a new building is nothing but an empty shell without teachers and books! Thus take a look at the photos at the end of this post ...
If you want to help me out with my book delivery, send a pledge to firstname.lastname@example.org. In lieu of new cash donations, you are welcome to send books in English or Mandarin which are educationally appropriate for pre-school through the 3rd grade to:
- Richard Hoeg
- 3924 Wisconsin Avenue North
- New Hope, Minnesota 55427 U.S.A.
