RUN for Tibet a Success!

By Chris Gherardi & Lucinda Sears
RUN For Tibet Coordinators

We would like to update you all with regard to the RUN For Tibet fundraiser that took place on Sunday, May 31st. The walka-jogathon was a huge success! Due to the generous support of our donors and event participants we were able to raise $3,440 for the Konchok Foundation’s Education Project in Tibet. This exceeded well our original goal of $2,000, and is a testament to what a small group of dedicated individuals can accomplish when we all work together united by a common cause.

On an especially exciting note, we were informed by the Konchok Foundation that the RUN For Tibet contribution will be doubled through a special matching grant sponsored by two Konchok Foundation donors. This large sum of money will be greatly appreciated by the Surmang community in Tibet, and will go a long way towards rebuilding the Shedra and financing the children’s education program.

The Sunday event was a fun and rewarding experience for all the participants. We had beautiful weather in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park to encourage the participants along every step of the way, and everyone enjoyed the BBQ festivities at the end of their hard work.

Please join us in congratulating all the donors and participants for all their hard work and effort!

Ki Ki So So!
