On Wednesday, May 16th, 2012, Sisters Elementary School is having a school-wide event called the “Run for Nepal”. This event will raise money for a school library in the village of Tungkhaling in Northeastern Nepal. This village, like most in Nepal, has no access to books due to its isolation. Ten Friends has established 14 libraries in remote villages in this area. Our goal for the Run for Nepal is to raise $2500 which will provide about 600 books for this small village community. The children will be most excited to get these books!
So, from 1:30- 2:30 on May 16th students will walk, or run, for an hour to promote service to others, boost school spirit, and earn their donations with this group effort on our playground running trail. There will be snack and water stations. All are invited to join the Run. All visitors must check in at the school office. Donations will bring the gift of books to this remote village.
Thanks for your support!
