So what does an ETI Director named Gracious have in common with a RunMN guy named Dan? “Lots” might be the answer. For starters both completed the Running for Victory 5K on August 7th – Dan in first place! Both he and Gracious are “giving back” as they help bring economic transformation to Tanzania by supporting this fundraiser for the Opportunity Centers in Karagwe. Gracious (Dr. G) was raised in Tanzania and shares the ETI vision with Dan over a cool and welcome bottled water.
Victory Lutheran Church led by Pastor Brendan Prigge sponsored the 2016 annual Running for Victory 5K in Eden Prairie. There were about 100 participants and Victory will donate all proceeds to ETI’s programs. THANKS to all who registered as runners or walkers or gazelles (virtual runners). Special thanks to those of you who ran remotely: Three runners in Chicago and two in Sweden!
Next year our Tanzanian partners will participate from Karagwe!
Many thanks to our partners at RunMN and Victory Lutheran in Eden Prairie with a special shout out to Becky McCathie, parishioner and Running for Victory 5K Race Coordinator.
