A Dollar a Mile

$3,386 of $2,600 goal

Raised by 56 people in 54 months
Essete and Hiwote are teaming up with Taarik, a new socially responsible fashion brand that supports artisans in the developing world, to raise money to educate schoolgirls in Ethiopia. They are running the Baltimore City Half Marathon and raising a dollar (or ten) for every mile they run for a combined total of $2,600 by October 18th, 2014 for the charity, Project Ethiopia.



Project Ethiopia is a non-profit group that helps various communities in rural Ethiopia build schools. Taarik is partnering with Project Ethiopia to help them achieve this, and using ALL of the proceeds towards buying uniforms for 300 students in Agaga School, which is located in Bahir Dar, Ethiopia.



All we ask of you is a small donation of $26 (or more if you are feeling generous) to help us achieve our goal. If 100 people participate we will have met our goal. That being said, we appreciate any donation to help us attain this.

Who Are These Chicks And Why Are They Running One Of The Hilliest Half Marathons in the Nation?



Chick #1: Essete Getaneh is a professional ranch enthusiast by day, a road runner by night and occasionally pretends to know how to walk in heels. She tries to live off the grid except she can’t escape Facebook’s prying grip. She is running a half marathon now as part of her training for her full marathon in March. 



Chick #2: Hiwote Getaneh (no they are not sisters) is a youtube addict by day, self improvement junkie by night, and a skilled analyst of inconsequential woes. She is only running a half marathon because she saw Essete sign up for one. You can find her at her blog, thingsiwishweresimple.com or on instagram @hiwyg.
