Proceeds from the #FightingChance 8k will benefit 25:40. 25:40 works
to ensure orphaned and vulnerable children have a fighting chance to
survive poverty, disease and violence. 25:40 is a nonprofit
organization founded in 2003, dedicated to helping communities empower
orphaned and vulnerable children in the often overlooked rural areas of
southern Africa. 25:40’s collaborative program model provides a
framework of entrusting communities to save their children and was
designed to be easily replicated in other rural areas of southern
Africa. 25:40 does not simply provide financial resources, but provides
hard and soft skills to encourage the community to develop and invest
in their own resources to become economically self-sufficient.
