On Sunday, November 10, 2013, Gerald Gakundi laced up his sneakers to Run – the ING New York City Marathon.
Gerald ran New York Marathon in 3 hours and 30 minutes to raise funds to support (through GM Foundation) talented girls, who excel in academics but lack of the financial means to pursue their secondary school education.
He raised USD 8,000 from the event. This amount is enough to provide three young girls with a four-year boarding school scholarship allowing them to stay in school and pursue education without interruption.
The funds raised will be used specially to pay the school fees for underprivileged girls.
