Newton Running Partners with Trickle Up to Fight Poverty

October 17th is the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, a time when people around the world reaffirm their commitment to reducing the burden on the world’s poor. This year, Newton Running is partnering with Trickle Up to raise awareness about global poverty.

Trickle Up is an organization that helps people living on less than $1 a day start microenterprises. Trickle Up provides training, seed capital grants and savings services to empower participants to take their first steps out of poverty.

Watch this new video to find out more about how we’re working with Trickle Up to help fight poverty around the world:

    Trickle Up is a needed outlet. Not only do we have to make room for it, but we should make a lot of room for it. It's a matter of balance.
    Meantime, as you are runners, I thought you might be interested in having a peak at this inspirational story from the Chicago marathon, and perhaps commenting on it!
