Race2Adventure supports Mashi

By | April 6, 2011

Race2Adventure is an opportunity to discover and explore countries while competing in short races throughout the trip.  Race2Adventure came to Ecuador on March 27th of this year.  Mashi was contacted by Tom Atkin, a member of the organisation who was looking for a charity they could support.  Tom decided they would like to help Mashi and so asked members to bring something with them that they could then donate to the children Mashi is helping. 

Sarah went to meet the group at Hotel Quito on Sunday 27th March while the group of 100 were registering for the race.  The response to Tom’s request had been great and there were many bags of donations for the children, of medicines, vitamins, paper, pens and pencils, all items that were perfect for the children in Loma Grande.

Jorge, one of the trustees of the foundation and volunteer in Patate came along to Quito to meet the group and to take the donations back to Loma Grande.  He was able to give out the supplies to the children and they were very gratefully received.

Mashi would like to say a very big thank you to the organisers of this event, Merritt Hopper and his team and to all those who donated.

Thanks to the Mashi Foundation, Race2Adventure was able to turn this past week into something that much more special.  We were already prepared to have a tremendous week filled with culture and adventure, but when we found out about how we could help underprivileged children in Ecuador at the same time, it gave the week even more meaning.  We hope our donations make the lives of the children just a little bit better.
