Our mission at The Education Abroad Network is to change lives, one by one through our programs. Here is your opportunity to join us changing lives, this time, run by run.
The Education Abroad Network would like to invite you to attend our THIRD ANNUAL Charity Fun Walk/Run in St. Louis. Held during the Annual NAFSA Conference for international education professionals, previous participants have commented that it’s a real treat to escape the madness of the conference, the endless receptions and excessive consumption, and to get some fresh air, all while being a part of a great cause.
This year the 1k walk/ 5K run will raise money to improve the quality of life for children and adults with disabilities through equine assisted therapy. TEAN will be donating to Reigns of Life, Therapeutic Horseback Riding, on behalf of everyone who registers and completes the walk or run.
Our TEAN Walk / Run has raised over five thousand dollars in the last two years for the Christchurch earthquake appeal in 2011 and Cambodian Rural schools in 2012, all because participants gave up an hour of their time at the conference.
Date: Tuesday May 28, 2013
When: The Run and Walk will kick off at 5:45PM. Most walkers are done by 6:15pm and runners shortly thereafter in plenty of time to enjoy much of the Opening Gala.
RSVP: To register and receive full details of the event please email Amanda Lord. The first 100 registrations will receive a free TEAN t-shirt and TEAN water bottle at the event.
Where: The event will be held on a special course in the park at the base of the St.Louis Arch. This is close to the conference center.
Give Away: We are excited to announce a special prize, which will be drawn immediately after the walk/run. One lucky participant will receive a $US750.00 international flight certificate provided by Student Universe Travel.
So – throw your sneakers in your suitcase and come walk or run for a cause at the 3rd Annual TEAN NAFSA Fun / Walk Run!
