A fellow Zambian, Catherine Hopkins, will run a marathon on October 9 in Portland, Oregon, in support of Malambo Grassroots. Please support her by donating. 

Here are Catherine’s own words about the upcoming marathon:

“This October I have done a silly thing and signed up for my first marathon!! After lots of hard training sessions sitting on the couch procrastinating about running shoes and nutrition but doing little in the way of hitting the tarmac, I have finally found something to motivate me to the finish line.

“If you would like to donate towards my run:

“Go to the donate page. The site is run through Rose Charites based in Vancouver and ALL the money given goes to Malambo. Make sure that you choose the Malambo charity and mention it is for MALAMBO Grassroots/Catherine’s Marathon. If you would like a tax receipt one can be provided. Also if you go this route drop me of Malambo an email so we can confirm your donation with Rose.”
