Saturday, April 28, 2018 at 10:00 a.m.

100% of participants’ entry fees go to help Gambians in need. The proceeds go directly to The Gambia, no government interference. The last 5 years you have helped send goats, seed, food, blankets, shirts, gristmill, 5 water wells in Zambia, and 1 in Uganda. This year we hope to provide tree protection in The Gambia where deforestation is a real problem, negatively affecting the primitive farming in the Sabi area. The trees are nitrogen fixing, replacing fertilizer and help in preventing erosion. We have more information if you are interested.
