Ground Broken For New Orphanage In Africa Thanks To Living Fuel And FreeRide836 Kiteboarders
Date:7/11/2013

Orlando, Florida (PRWEB) July 11, 2013

How many miles do you need to travel to build an orphanage in Africa? 68 miles to start. That's how many miles kiteboarders traveled to raise more than $50,000 to build a self-sustaining home for 12 orphans and their adult supervisors in Tanzania.

The idea for FreeRide836 began with Mark Russell during a family mission trip to Guatemala. Russell said they were very thankful for what they had and wanted to do more to help people. They wanted to go beyond feeding hungry children and also give them a safe place to live. They wanted to do something special to make a difference in the lives of children around the world who didn't have the advantages his children had.

Tanzania is home to more than a million orphans because of the AIDS epidemic. Poverty is another big problem there. People who live in the area where the orphanage will be built, make only $1.25 a day. Approximately 35 percent of the population lives at or below the poverty line and 40% live in area suffering from chronic shortages of food. Almost a million-and-a-half Tanzanians live with HIV and AIDS – leaving more than 40% of the population under the age of 14.

KC and Monica Craichy, Founders of Living Fuel, Inc., are the Title Sponsors for FreeRide836. They attended the ride on May 26th with their five children.

"Our mission is to change lives and sometimes that looks a lot different than how we are used to accomplishing it," KC Craichy said. "As the Title Sponsor for the FreeRide event we invested in the cause, promoted the event and Fueled the athletes for the grueling ride. It is special to be a part of something this important from vision to fruition and to see all the efforts providing a life for these children!"

Monica Craichy is also excited to be part of raising funds to build the orphanage in Tanzania. "What could be better than taking care of kids who don't have anyone! We are thrilled to play a role in putting a roof over their heads, food in their mouths and providing them with a loving home!"

Mark Russell and his volunteer team are working with Orphan's Heart to eventually build three foster homes. 100% of the donations made to FreeRide 836 will be used for the construction of the orphanage in Tanzania.
