In November, Martin Parnell and nine other international runners organized and advised 60 Afghan novice long-distance runners, which included five Afghan women who raced alongside the male competitors. The race was held in Bamiyan.
Martin realized when he was in Bamiyan that the local girls school needed a basketball/volleyball court, so proceeds from his yearly Run/Walk in Cochrane this month will be donated to build this sports court. Along with writing books and being a motivational speaker, Martin runs marathons to raise money for sport initiatives in developing countries. To date his events have raised $1.3 million for the charity, Right to Play.
Please join us to support sports activities in Afghanistan.
