    Team Race 4 marathon runners fundraising for Kenya

    in Business

    Guests: Anna Rodrigues, Delis Alejandro and Nataly Garcia

    On March 14 and 15, 2015, St. Monica Parishioners (Santa Monica, CA) will participate in the 5K walk and run of the LA Marathon raising funds for Veronika’s Place.

    Veronika’s Place is a nutritional support program, in Dandora, Kenya. That
    provides food each month for 400 men, women, and children with HIV/AIDS.

    Team Race 4 Veronika's Place is in its 3rd year as an official charity
    partnering with the ASICS LA Marathon. Over the past 2 years we have had 55
    team members and raised money to provide food to Veronika's Place for two

    Many of those who receive this food are single mothers and their children.
    The monthly food distribution through the Veronika’s Place ministry
    provides them with basic nutrition, including cooking oil, flour and rice.
    It is extremely important for patients to maintain weight for medication to
    be effective.

    Veronika Lineberry Manzella, a member of the Holy Cross Africa Ministry
    Core Team at St. Monica's Church, was determined to make a difference when
    she saw a video about the struggles, despair and plight of the people of
    Dandora, Kenya. She set out to raise funds for the Brother Andre Dispensary
    and the Voluntary Counseling and Testing Clinic in Africa. In 2007,
    following Veronika’s untimely passing, the people of Dandora dedicated the
    VCT Clinic in her honor and renamed it “Veronika’s Place.”

    Ourgoal for our 3rd year is to raise approximately $30,000

    dollars per year to maintain the food distribution at its current level.

    If you would like to support the runners representing Veronika’s Place

    We are a committee of the St. Monica Holy Cross Africa Ministry.

    An amazing account of faith, running as a national champion, hope and inspiration.  A true story of genocide survival and a second chance to give back as a running coach in America.  As told by Gilbert Tuhabonye.

    Gilbert Tuhabonye, a native of Burundi Africa, a nationally ranked runner and genocide survivor.  Tells how he escaped being burned to death with all his schoolmates, now a renowned running coach in America. An inspiring story every runner must hear.

    Gilbert narrowly escaped an attack on his school as the Hutu’s sought revenge for the murder of the president of Burundi by the Tutsi’s. With 30% of his body burned he escaped a burning building where as many as 200 of his class mates lay brutally tortured and burned to death.  Fortunately, this story ends well as Gilbert now coaches runners in Austin Texas.
