Fundraiser: The Gobi Desert race!

June 2, 2023

As he did last year, our dear friend David Grosse will participate in a 155-mile footrace through the Gobi desert in Mongolia to raise funds for CSC. From June 18th to 24th 2023 he will take part in the Gobi March - a 7-day, 250 km / 155-mile footrace that takes place in the stunning Karakorum region of Central Mongolia. Through seven days he will join other competitors in traversing the vast Mongolian steppes, sand dunes, and rock valleys - all to support CSC and our mission.


His profile picture is from the last time he was in the Gobi 10 years ago. As he jokingly puts it - "a decade older and slower, but probably not wiser." Please  support David in this endeavor through the Global Giving website
