This Sunday, November 23 at 10:00 AM in Tibbetts Brook Park, Yonkers, Lansdowne Rfc NY is running in a 3 mile/5K race for a charity called Self Help Africa. Established in the immediate aftermath of the Ethiopian famine 30 years ago, Self Help Africa is a charitable organization that focuses on helping small term farmers to move on from subsistence to surplus in order to develop sustainable farm businesses. Self Help Africa works at the grassroots level in 9 sub-Saharan African nations, tackling poverty and improving the lives of local communities. An incredible 93% of public donations to Self Help Africa goes directly to supporting charitable activities. In 2012 alone more than $12 million was allocated by Self Help Africa towards smallholder farmers. Please come out and join Lansdowne RFC In support of the charity, or contact the organization at selfhelpafrica.org.
