The beginning of a new year provides an opportunity to take a step back and reflect on the success of the past year and the growth of the year to come. In 2015, RunAnyway helped raise over 30,000 through #500forthefallen. This year Lance Stevens resolves to raise over $40,000 and help create more awareness for Fallen Patriots mission. We are extremely thankful for his continued dedication to help insure a future for Gold Star children.
In Central African Republic (CAR), Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) emergency teams have vaccinated almost 10,000 children in the Gadzi area, about 186 miles west of the capital Bangui, after several cases of measles led local authorities to raise the alarm. The vaccination teams had to cope with major access problems due to the poor state of the roads and the dispersion of the population in the area, where more than 70,000 people live with virtually no basic health care.
