In 2016, we ran across the stunning backdrop of Victoria Falls, briefly crossing into Zambia, for the Victoria Falls Marathon. In 2018, we ran the Kigali International Peace Marathon in Rwanda and stood on the rooftop of Africa, summiting Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, five years in a row.
Now, we are about to embark on a new journey: to run the 2020 TCS New York City Marathon!
About the END Fund
The END Fund is the only private philanthropic initiative dedicated to ending the five most common neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) that affect 1.7 billion people around the world, including 1 billion children. These parasitic and bacterial diseases cause malnutrition, disability, blindness, and even death, perpetuating the cycle of poverty. NTD treatment is proven to be safe and effective – and costs less than 50 cents per person per year.
