May 1st was the May Day 5K Race to support the United Front Against River Blindness.  This is a mosquito born blinding disease affecting millions in the Congo and at the same time easy to cure.  One pill every year for 10 years stops the disease.  Each runner funded treatment for 5 people!  Thanks Barbara Fox for telling us about the race.  We also got to see another client and friend at the event, Michele Tuck-Ponder of the Women's Fund of New Jersey, who was one of the organizers and soon off to the Congo herself to help with this cause.  For more information about how to help, visit UFAR.
