Over the past month, 180 people from all over the world took on a fitness & fundraising challenge in support of The Addis Clinic. The Addis Clinic got people moving in Germany, Afghanistan, Texas, Kentucky, Colorado, Washington D.C., Boston, North Carolina, Georgia, California, New York...the list could go on and on!
In detail, the challenge was to run/walk/swim/lift/cardio/dance 100 miles (or 1000 minutes) per participant throughout the month. Some even literally went a few extra miles (even an extra 100!). If you do the quick math these dedicated individuals walked 18000 miles, or ⅔ of a way around the earth, to raise awareness and support clinicians and patients in Africa, Haiti, and Belize. We are so honored by and proud of each person who enthusiastically tackled such a daunting task. Not only did they commit to the physical challenge, but also to donate at least 10 cents per mile complete. These generous gifts enable us to continue to expand our work as we use telemedicine to increase access to healthcare for underserved populations across the globe.
The Addis Clinics wants to thank all participants of this challenge. Your support is incredibly encouraging!
