The 3rd Annual Tyler's Run will be held this Saturday, July 28th, 2018 at Cardiff State Beach.
Tyler's Run is a Fundraising Event benefiting local area charities, Invisible Children and TWLOHA.
We at Caravan Maya were super stoked to know of and support this most worthy cause and wanted to be in attendance! So as a team, We decided to visit with the Founding Director of this event, Ms. Nancy Lang and learn more about this event and to share some of her thoughts with you.
Q. Why are you organizing/ hosting this run/walk event?
A. This fundraiser is very important to me to bring awareness to the Child Soldiers in Uganda. When my son, Tyler learned about the horrors of Joseph Kony he was determined to join the effort to save the children.
Tyler was especially drawn to one of our local area non-profits, Invisible Children (http://www.invisiblechildren.com) on account of their ability to provide an early warning radio network that not only warns but notifies neighborhoods even villages as to when the perpetrators are in vicinity to kidnap, rape, murder or pillage nearby!
On a personal note - I must confess, although Tyler is no longer with us, I am very fortunate and blessed that I have the love and support to keep Tyler's dream of a better world alive. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! (I mean that). Please Join Us this Saturday, July 28, 2018 at Cardiff State Beach.
Q. How much do you plan to raise?
A. I would love to raise more each year, so this year, we are aiming to raise over $ 1,000
Q. What is the mission besides the money?
A. Our mission is to raise awareness about this ongoing threat to innocent families not only in Africa but with the current threats - for all of us around the world. Ultimately, we hope that this scurge will be destroyed sooner rather than later.
Q. Will the event be fun, interactive, and impactful experience for all the participants and non-profits alike?
A. Yes, we are super excited as the weather is awesome this time of year and Cardiff State Beach is perfect for this Tyler's Run 2018!
Also, attendees don't need to run. They can walk, surf or just hang out. We will have a hosted lunch and music!
Local Area Businesses have donated some amazing raffle prizes that you can participate in for a very small donation of only $5.00!.
