FIMRC Portland Marathon Team
The Foundation for International Medical Relief of Children is excited to partner with the Portland Marathon as an official charity for the second year in a row!
FIMRC is a 501(c)3, non-profit organization dedicated to improving pediatric and maternal health in the developing world through the implementation of innovative and self-sustainable health improvement programs. Through its network of outpatient clinics and partnerships, FIMRC asserts a multidimensional strategy that includes clinical services, extensive community outreach efforts and health education programs.
FIMRC is a self-sustainable organization with project related funding provided from business operations – the Global Health Volunteer Program engages approximately 800 individuals annually who volunteer their time abroad and make a contribution in exchange for the experience FIMRC provides. Your contribution to our marathon runners will go to our seven project sites in Nicaragua, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Uganda, and India into sustainable programming to improve the health in these communities.
We hope that you consider supporting our Portland Marathoners in their mission to improve pediatric and maternal health in the developing world!
