SPONSOR Pediatric Associates of Springfield
Hi everyone, Pediatric Associates of Springfield has formed a team to sponsor the 5K Walk to End FGM with the Global Woman P.E.A.C.E. Foundation. It would be awesome if you could show full storyjoin us for the walk, which will take place in D.C. To register, go here. Choose 'Join Team'; pick "Pediatric Associates of Springfield" in the list, then 'continue' at the bottom; choose "Adult Walk Day Only Participant" with cost of $35. Please, print registration confirmation and give to our office manager Vicky. We will reimburse you for the registration fee. Background: This idea began when Marin, my daughter, did her Capstone Project research for her middle school graduation. She did extensive research on the subject, went to Global Woman P.E.A.C.E. foundation workshops regarding all aspects of FGM and even interviewed one of the survivors. You can watch the interview here, and click on her Participant Page. Thank you, Dr. Hoang
Our goal this year is to raise at least $15,000. When you sponsor this year's event your sponsorship dollars or product will help the Lisa C. Bruch Scholarship Fund for girls in West Africa to prevent the continuation of female genital mutilation. The scholarship fund was named in memory of the late Lisa Bruch, a dedicated Board Advisor and Donor of Global Woman P.E.A.C.E. Foundation. Thank you!
