I am running the London Marathon 2024 for Children Change Colombia, a charity that helps children to claim their right to live safely and in peace.

Please help me reach my target of $US 4,000 so the funds could improve access to education for vulnerable indigenous and migrant children in the Caribbean region of Colombia!

As I was preparing for my first marathon, I felt inspired to contribute back to the country I grew up in. I’m honoured to collaborate with Children Change Colombia, (CCC), a charity based in London and Bogotá dedicated to addressing key neglected issues, including children at risk of sexual exploitation, children recruited into armed groups and illegal mining, and those excluded from education.

Children Change Colombia is undertaking several projects to support children studying STEM subjects in La Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta and girl-led research projects. The funds raised will be directed to these projects.

Your donations could contribute to:

$25 – provide a year of music and dance sessions for a child to cope with past trauma

$50 – provide 6 months of psychosocial support to a child formerly associated with armed groups

$100 -provide a tablet for a child to be able to have access to education in remote areas.

I am sure this campaign will have a profound impact and change the lives of many boys and girls in need in Colombia and I invite YOU to join me in my race to make that difference with a small donation and make my first marathon a success story for them!

I am a Colombian - American engineer living in Texas. I have dedicated many years to advocating for the importance of education and women in STEM, from winning world-renowned scholarships to working for NASA.

I hope to inspire young girls to pursue their dreams and overcome their barriers. And this is why the project 'Misión Gaia' and this cause are so close to my heart and with your help we could make education a right and NOT a privilege for many children in need in Colombia!





El próximo 21 de abril estaré participando en la Maratón de Londres 2024 a favor de Children Change Colombia, una organización benéfica que ayuda a los niños a hacer valer su derecho a vivir seguros y en paz.

Te invito a que me ayudes a alcanzar mi meta de recolectar $US 4.000 para poder mejorar el acceso a la educación de los niños indígenas y migrantes y vulnerables de la región Caribe de Colombia.


Mientras me preparaba para mi primer maratón, me sentí inspirada para contribuir al país en el que crecí. Me siento muy honrada de colaborar con Children Change Colombia, (CCC), una organización benéfica con sede en Londres y Bogotá dedicada a abordar problemas fundamentales de la niñez que han sido desatendidos, tales como la explotación sexual infantil, el reclutamiento de niños por parte de grupos armados y la minería ilegal, y su exclusión de la educación, entre otros.

Children Change Colombia está desarrollando varios proyectos para apoyar a los niños que estudian materias de ciencia, tecnología, ingeniería y matemáticas (STEM, por sus siglas en inglés) en La Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta y proyectos de investigación dirigidos por niñas. Los fondos recaudados se destinarán a estos proyectos.

Tus donaciones podrían contribuir a:

$25 - a proporcionar un año de sesiones de música y danza para que un/a niño/a pueda hacer frente a traumas del pasado.

$50 - a un niño que ha estado vinculado a grupos armados durante 6 meses.

$100 - a proporcionar una tableta para que un niño pueda tener acceso a la educación en zonas remotas.

Estoy segura de que esta campaña tendrá un profundo impacto y que juntos podremos cambiar la vida de muchos niños y niñas necesitados en Colombia y hacer que para muchos de ellos la educación sea un derecho y NO un privilegio.

Por eso te invito a que te unas a mi carrera para hacer esa diferencia con una pequeña donación y hacer de mi primera maratón una exitosa causa para ellos.
