I'm Malik Savage, a senior at Urban Prep Academy for Young Men, and I have the opportunity of taking the trip of a lifetime to AFRICA before going off to college. [www.urbanprep.org] click on the featured video on the home page to see me in action :)
On September 9, I will be running the Chicago Half Marathon with my friend Mercedez who traveled to Tanzania back in 2005. I will be delivering clothes and supplies to AMANI HOME FOR STREET CHILDREN [www.amanikids.org], living the experience of giving back, visiting wild animals while camping in the Serengeti and experiencing a completely different culture that will change the way I view things. It will change my life.
I decided to run this race because I knew it would be a challenge and a way to reach out to people who want to help me achieve a huge goal and help others at the same time. Crossing that finish line is something I KNOW I CAN ACHIEVE when I put my mind, body and soul into it. I WILL SUCCEED!
Please support me by making a donation of $25.00
[or whatever you can afford]
Your generosity will be so appreciated and go towards shots, travel fees, Tanzanian visa, supplies, eating sleeping for two weeks and going on safari in the Serengeti!!
I promise to stay committed and keep everyone who supports me posted with photos, blogs and personal stories.
