May Marathon to Support Konchok Foundation
by Brian Sutton
I am dedicating my upcoming (May 27) marathon to benefit the Konchok Foundation, and I am asking you to help too. Many of you know about the work of the Konchok Foundation, a non-profit organization helping to meet the spiritual, cultural, educational and humanitarian needs of the Tibetan people in Surmang and elsewhere in the Kham and Golok regions of Tibet. At konchok.org you can see the photos and videos of the people and places in this poor, remote region and the buildings going up for education, health and living. An orphanage, health clinic, and a monastic school are all being built and supported by privately donated funds.
There is a still a great need! “Privately donated funds” can mean many small donations from many friends, family, and sangha. You can sponsor my marathon for $26.00, just a dollar for every mile I will be running on May 27th. Or donate whatever amount you are inspired and able to give.
You can donate directly to: konchok.org/donation_gifts.php
When you receive your confirmation just let them know it is for Brian’s Marathon Fundraising. If you prefer not to donate online, contact me and then you can donate by seeing me or mailing me. I will be sending in a collective donation after the marathon.
