H. Weiland’s fundraising event

Up a mountain & around an island – For Volunteers

Closed

What's it about?

Dear friends, colleagues and family,

this summer I’m thrilled to have the privilege to partake in a 39 km & 1900 meter elevation mountain marathon up the Zugspitze in the Bavarian Alps (June 18th), followed directly by a three day team cycling race circumventing Iceland June (21-24th), where I’ve set a +150 km per day cycling target. I’ve been training for months for this challenge, yet my ultimate goal …

is to bring attention to the incredible work of the experienced social founders Janice and Werner Lehnis at the non-profit
Care in Action, who in the Ukraine are empowering vulnerable children and orphans through initiative, education and responsible action to live an independent life. I find the work of Care in Action not only politically extremely relevant, but through their “help for self-help”-model and the development of volunteerism culture in society, view it as a sustainable approach to development work.

With your help, I’d like to assist Care In Action achieve their goal of funding essential resources (e.g. meals, materials, transport, etc.) for the staff and above all, the volunteers, who are a cornerstone in carrying out the STEP (“life skill coaching”) and TOGETHER (child development) programming.
