Most of you may know about the upcoming Basketball Marathon, but have you heard of the twelve-hour fasting that will be taking place on the same day?
The International Mindedness Club has created this event in order to raise awareness for children in rural China who suffer from poverty and malnutrition on a daily basis. Don’t worry: if you participate in the twelve-hour fast, you can still watch and support our players in the Basketball Marathon.
As an added perk, only the participants of the fast are given special permission to stay after school to continue watching the players, and there will be other activities to do while at school as well.
How to participate: Just pick up either a yellow or purple pledge form from the main office and raise as much money as you can. Ask your friends, your family, and your neighbors to support you. (Aim for a total pledge of $65!)
