Run4Poverty - Gobi Race

Fundraiser Image Run4Poverty was created for endurance athletes who have a desire to push their physical limits and raise awareness and funds for sustainable change.

Where Donations Go

2.5 billion people live on less than $2 per day. Women and girls represent 70% of this number. Many of these women are entrepreneurs who simply need basic access to one small loan of $150 to set them on a course that is life-transforming. Your gift to Opportunity will provide women clients with access to financial resources they need to work their way out of poverty and create a better future for themselves and their families.
