Join the TYO Team on a Journey Across the Sahara

The Sahara Race — spanning 150 miles (250 km) through the Valley of the Whales in Egypt and part of the 4 Deserts “Racing the Planet” series — was named by TIME magazine as one of the top 10 toughest endurance competitions in the world. In October 2011, TYO friend and supporter, Usama Malik, will take on this unbelievable challenge in support of TYO.
Please join team TYO as Usama runs to raise funds for Tomorrow’s Youth. Throughout the summer, we’ll be checking in on his training–running up to 130 miles a week–and fundraising for TYO–the climb to $20,000.

How can YOU get involved?

Please visit our project page and contribute! Better yet, join Crowdrise, an online platform that puts the fun in fundraising, and become a fundraiser for Team Usama & TYO. Invite friends to join the Team and keep up with Usama’s progress.

As always, TYO is extremely grateful for our generous supporters. We would like to send a special message of thanks and good luck to Usama for taking on this incredible challenge to benefit TYO. And to all of you — thank you in advance for joining our cause! Stay tuned for more updates from Usama’s training log.

A Bit More about Usama

Usama lives in New York City where he works as Vice President for Worldwide Innovation and Diversified Businesses Strategy at Pfizer Inc.  He likes to write essays on social, cultural and political issues – particular interest in developing markets (he grew up in Nigeria and Pakistan), exploring human nature, and understanding the impact of behavioral economics on policy and society.  Usama also actively contemplates and participates in social & economic development opportunities, including co-founding a non-profit homeless shelter 10 years ago. He also supports and drives a multitude of philanthropic causes related to health, education, and women’s rights globally, including TYO, and currently serves as board member to several non-profits. He is a distance runner, tennis aficionado, world traveler, compulsive reader, and foodie.
