Thank You From One4Another!

On May 11th, we participated in the Annual Run 4 Another, hosted by One4Another International, at Bechtel Park, Waterloo. The purpose of this run, was to raise money to help children in Uganda that require surgeries to correct club feet and other debilitating conditions. With your help, The Baverstock Team raised over $1,800; the run itself, raised over $40,000.

Message from Glenn Pascoe, co-founder of One4Another International:

Dear Gary & Debbie,

I’ve recently returned from Uganda and wanted to send along this thank you from the kids who are currently with us in the clinic for your fantastic fundraising during our recent run.

I am always overwhelmed by the needs of the children but take heart that even if we’re not able to fix the problem we are almost always able to make life at least a bit easier for children that are burdened by both the weight of poverty and disability.  Thank you for making it possible for the work of One4Another to meet the needs of the children that come to us for help.

I hope you’re having a fantastic summer so far!

Gratefully,
Glenn
