****** ABOUT THE WONDER MARIUM FUND ******
In addition to gathering to support the IFAD cause, we will be raising funds for the Wonder Marium Fund Inc., whose purpose is to empower women and children in Pakistan through hula hoop dance and continue “Wonder” Marium Aktar’s inspirational, educational and humanitarian peace work by encouraging self-expression through hoop dance. Marium was murdered at a very young age by fundamentalists in Pakistan for her work. Her story, love, and purpose must live on.
