KOMoves for Youth 2018
July 1, 2018 @ 12:00 am - July 31, 2018 @ 12:00 am
Are you ready for a challenge this July?
We invite you to join KOMoves for Youth, a 30-Day challenge where participants commit to running, walking, biking, or another form of exercise from July 1 – 31. During that time, each participant will raise a minimum of $200 to support KOM’s Youth Program. Our goal is to raise $5,000 to further our impact in the lives of refugee youth. All participants will receive a KOMoves sticker. Participants who raise over $200 will receive a water bottle for their efforts! Woohoo, let’s get started!
KOM’s Youth Program has made a difference in the lives of over 1,000 refugee youth since the program began. Youth that participate in the program build leadership skills, build connections with their peers and the community and receive opportunities to deepen their understanding and connection to Karen culture. Several of our former students have gone on to college or work to give back to their community. Two of KOM’s direct service staff, Hta Thi Yu Moo and Every Gyi, were also participants of KOM’s youth program while in high school. This program is important for raising up the next generation of Karen and Karenni leaders.
