Find 52: Friends of Albert Klein
For the second year, I am pleased to train Richard for Find 52 Thousand St. Lucia; Last year was a tremendous experience; I’m excited to be running again.
Why I am participating
I grew up in Columbia, where there were lots of example of people doing without. I often think about the huge number of books my own children – Carley 5 and Ethan 2½– have at their disposal at home, school or our local library. I get as much joy reading to them as they do listening. It’s easy to take books for granted. Now, through OneWorld Schoolhouse, children in the Eastern Caribbean are getting improved access to books.
My secret strategy for the run
Last year, I brought a very big umbrella. I plan to continue this unconventional tradition. Laugh if you must!
If I can persuade 100 people to donate at least $52, I’ll raise $5200 for this great cause. It will go a long way to empower youth in St. Lucia through improved access to reading and literacy. So please help me in my quest to help others by supporting me. You’ll receive tax receipt for your donation. You can follow the event through the OneWorld Schoolhouse Foundation social media links so don’t forget to connect with those. Thanks, everyone!
