On Sunday September 29, Georgios Georgiou and his friend Jim Higley ran the Berlin Marathon. They dedicated their effort, time and 26.2 miles to raise funds to build a kitchen for a very special school Georgios encountered during his stay with Elewana Collection in Tanzania earlier this year.
The school is in desperate need of a kitchen. The wooden shack which previously served as a “kitchen” has blown away by strong winds so the staff and students now prepare limited food in the open. The lack of a proper kitchen means the school cannot provide lunch for students and many children will either go without a meal all day, or leave school early to go home for lunch and not return.
Georgios and Jim have this to say : “We appreciate your donation. For that you’ll not only have our gratitude for helping these children – we’ll also raise a stein of beer in your honor at Octoberfest in Munich (a perk of running a race in Germany this time of year!)“
