A Bang-Up Start

The day started with a bang – or a beat, in any case – for some 20 participants in this year”s CARE National Conference. These hardy souls gathered at 7 a.m., under the leadership of CARE Ambassador Eric Harr, and ran the few blocks to Washington”s National Mall. There, Master Drummer Antoinette Kudoto of Ghana provided the motivation, while they moved their bodies as part of the global movement against poverty.

By spending an invigorating hour working out in the shadow of the Washington Monument, the participants unlocked $100 in funds toward CARE”s work empowering women and girls worldwide – part of Eric”s I Am Powerful Workout.

Eric personally donates $5 for every hour participants work out. To find out more about his unique commitment to CARE, click here: www.care.org/workout
