Engage

Engage

We believe that giving should be a joyful and transformative experience that enhances the lives of partners and beneficiaries alike. Support our mission in a number of ways, a few of which are outlined below.

Dining in the Dark

Engage in a sensory and savory evening while experiencing cuisine and conversation in a unique way: in total darkness. The dynamic dinner series highlights the END Fund’s work in controlling and eliminating NTDs, with a special emphasis on, and empathy with, two blinding diseases: trachoma and river blindness. 

Join us for an upcoming Dining in the Dark—or plan your own sense-sational evening—by contacting Heather Haines at [email protected] for menus and more.

Summit to see the END

Trek to one of the world’s greatest peaks and stand on the rooftop of Africa. By climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, you can help raise awareness (and funds) to end the suffering of millions of people with NTDs. 

Join the journey of a lifetime June 29th to July 6th! If Kili is on your bucket list, contact two-time climber Abbey Turtinen  at [email protected] for more details (and training tips).

Race to see the END

By joining the Race to See the END, you can support the END Fund’s mission while participating in a marathon (or half marathon) against the stunning backdrop of Victoria Falls, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. With the possibility of spotting elephants along the race route, crossing briefly into Zambia, and a NTD “learning day” in Zimbabwe, this is likely to be one of the more memorable races–and experiences–you’ve encountered. 

As we anticipate the 2018 dates, please reach out to Abbey Turtinen at [email protected] for further details.
