A story of commitment

MikeMike, an ex-volunteer and friend of La Casa de Panchita, decided to run not one, but two half-marathons in order to raise funds to help our projects. After volunteering during six months at La Casa de Panchita, Mike went back to the UK to complete his studies. Nevertheless, he decided to keep supporting our organisation. Mike raised funds and engage new donors by running two 13.1 mile half-marathons and looking for sponsors. Through our partner GlobalGiving, he created an online fundraising page and was able to collect more than $500. Mike is a great example of continued commitment and of how everybody can make a difference!
Here is a link to the GlobalGiving’s fundraisers page, in case this story inspired you to do same (Well, not to run to half marathons, Mike’s crazy! But something similar).
