Start of this fundraising campaign

*******************************************

As longtime organizer of Tenzing Hillary Everest Marathon and several other running events in Nepal, we have been able to get to know some of the most caring and wonderful people around the world. After the tragic earthquake of 25th April 2015, many lives were lost, much properties were damaged and many hearts and spirits broken. We wanted to raise funds for Nepal by what we do best - by running or organising Running Events. Our idea was simple, we asked our runner friends around the cheap michael kors world to help us by organizing small or big voluntary running groups in their respective country under the banner of ‘Run to Rebuild Nepal’ to raise funds and awareness. When we shared this idea, most were immediately ready to help - we are very grateful.

About Run to Rebuild Fundraiser

*******************************************

Our fundraiser initiated under the banner ‘Run to Rebuild Nepal’  focuses is on rebuilding efforts. The premise of this is that the recent flood of relief into Nepal have mostly been in the form of aid materials (tents, blanket, food, medicine etc) but Nepal will be facing an uphill battle for the next few years to rebuild hospitals, schools, infrastructure, sanitation in both cities and remote areas. ‘Run to Rebuild Nepal’ is focused on rebuilding efforts.

Funds will be channeled through our friend in US, One World Trekking &  Tenzing Hillary Everest Marathon (THEM). All funding will be transparent and will be channelled directly to rebuilding efforts without any taken by our organisation. This is purely a non profit initiative. Reports on the fundraising (written and video) page

What will the Funds be Spent on?

For now fund raised from such campaign will spent in rebuilding tourist's destination Khumbu.

Run to rebuild Nepal is just a small initiative from Everest Marathon and  Adventure Sports Nepal.

CALL for HELP

*******************************************

We welcome anyone who is willing and has the ability to help us. We are not asking for any monetary help, we are asking for organisational help.

Like above you can also organise a small running group who will run for the cause of Raising Funds for Nepal under the banner of Run to Rebuild Nepal. You can do this by holding up the banner of “Run to Rebuild Nepal” and your individual country flag and record it on video and take pictures for promotional purposes of raising funds.
