Our wonderful client Kick4Life will be participating in the iconic ING New York City Marathon on Sunday November 3rd, 2013. If you are in the New York area, we encourage you to sign up to run with Kick4Life and help them with thier mission of changing the lives of vulnerable children in Africa.

Kick4Life harnesses “the power of sport to transform the lives of some of the most disadvantaged young people in the world.” The organization is based at the Football for Hope Centre in Lesotho, a country in southern Africa. Kick4Life supports at risk youth through health education, HIV prevention and voluntary testing facilities, life-skills development, mentorship as well as physical activities like sports.

If you are interested in participating in the marathon to support Kick4Life, please email jack@kick4life.org. Spots are limited and are going fast.

Below is a video from Kick4Life about their texting service, which provides Lesotho residents with information and guidelines about how to avoid HIV and where their nearest HIV clinic is in Lesotho.
