Richelle's Run for a Cause

Richelle May Penalba, a Fil-American based in California is running 13.1 miles at the Long Beach Half Marathon for the first time to raise funds for education scholarships.  Her goal is to raise $1,200 from pledges to be able to send two children to Mano Amiga Academy for one whole year!

 In 20 days, 23 people have already supported her cause enabling her to raise $751 about a month to go before the marathon won October 13, 2013. She plans to visit the Philippines this coming December so she could personally meet the Mano Amiga scholars she'll be helping. 

Please spread the word and support Richelle in her endeavor to finish her first ever marathon and to provide two deserving children a full scholarship in the school.
