As renowned ultra-distance runner, Stan Cottrell, prepares to go into all the world leading Friendship Run events (in all countries, territories and colonies) spreading messages of friendship and hope and raising funds for the 143 million orphans and abandoned children, Aroga Holding Corp and its subsidiaries will be there in support.

Aroga has named Cottrell its Global Ambasssador, and its Aroga Worldwide subsidiary has committed $3 million for the Run for the Orphans, coming from a percentage of sales of its holograms. Cottrell uses them in his long runs for added stamina and endurance.

Extensive social, cultural and business events at the run venues and surrounding economic initiatives will also help boost local economies and empower people with better lives.

Please SHARE this message and the information in the attached article on your own Google+ and other social media channels, raising support and awareness for the Run and its important missions.

Backbreaking work for survival... Poverty is rampant in Ethiopia (40%) due to drought, famine, wars, AIDS and other health issues... and the per capita orphan rate is among the world's highest. Stan Cottrell's upcoming documentary filmed during the June 2013 launch of The Great Global Friendship Run will be a fascinating expose of people and places, including breath-taking, remote areas where foreigners are almost never allowed (including salivating big film companies) #stancottrell #GGFR #GlobalRun #Ethiopia

Such an unjust system that catches these precious little ones in hope, confusion and fear... the reason one of our planned orphan initiatives is to address the international adoption process as The Great Global Friendship Run makes its way around the world...

I've been impressed with what I've been hearing about the Sinkhole Pros at Foundation Services in Ocala, Florida ... their responsiveness, quality, consistency, technical capabilities and customer service. If I was in the "Sinkhole Alley" of Central Florida, I would want to know more about the warning signs of sinkhole and foundation problems. Found good info on their website SinkholePros.com
The Wilburns of Ocala, FL did their homework first...The "Sinkhole Pros" at Foundation Services bring impeccable credentials, a powerful work ethic, and attentive customer service to the challenging industry of sinkhole remediation, foundation repair and post-sinkhole cosmetic restoration that's critical to Central Florida and to many properties throughout the state of Florida. These are great guys!  (I know them, and I live in "Sinkhole Alley!")

http://friendshipsports.org/ethiopia-president-for-orphans/ - special Saturday 1-hour informal meeting with the well loved 12-year President of Ethiopia, brilliant, gentle, with a heart for orphans and support for GGFR ... So much to share about that "Good ole boy" (highest compliment we Southern boys can pay a man who's genuine)... Wrote about it on FriendshipSports.org...

It was in China 1984 during 2125 miles of runs that the idea was polished by Stan Cottrell, like a pearl in the sea... the heart of "Friendship Runs' and why they are so effective at breaking down walls that divide one human heart from another... why The Great Global Friendship Run #GlobalRun is a "race" that MUST be run. I cannot do it alone.  I need YOU!
