Nothing should stand in the way of a child attending a Christ-centred school.
These schools are places of belonging and learning, where Christ's love is experienced and discovered through relationships, projects, and every minute spent at school.
But there are still barriers and injustices standing in the way of many children getting to school - and even fully enjoying school once they get there.
Just look at Msuzi Primary School in Lundazi, Zambia. Msuzi specifically welcomes students with physical disabilities, as they know these children face extra barriers to a quality, Christ-centred education. But the school still needs to grow. They have accessible, specially designed classrooms and dorms for students, but the buildings still need a water system.
That's where Hayden Regeling from Hamilton, Ontario fits in.
On June 26th, Hayden will race Ironman 70.3 Mont Tremblant, a triathlon that includes a 1.8 km swim, 90 km bike, and a 21.5 km run. This race is a six hour grind that Hayden has been preparing for since December 2021. After hearing about this project and learning more about Msuzi's care for the most vulnerable, Hayden knew he wanted to use this race as an opportunity to do something greater. He wanted to step up and support students around the world.
Now, Hayden needs your help. He wants to raise awareness and funds to support Msuzi's new water system - and you can help make it a reality.
This water system will be used to run water to the dormitory, classrooms, kitchen, and other necessary points at the school -- connecting students to water, and promoting hygiene and cleanliness for the students. Donate to Hayden's Ironman 70.3 today to help this new water system become a reality.
