Melissa Vanderbaaren Gobi Galloper 2020 Helping make a difference...one child at a time
So far I've already raised
Huge thanks to my wonderful friends and supporters! Arlene, Michael, Rita, Kyle, Sharon, Samuel, Shantelle, Dixie
I am thrilled to be accepted to ride in the Gobi Gallop in 2020. This is a ride where we will be covering 700 kms (435 miles) in just 10 days to help raise money and awareness for the Children of the Peak Sanctuary in Mongolia. I grew up with a love for horses and have been riding for most of my life but this will be my first time covering this many miles in 10 days. I am so excited to be able to participate in such an incredible event. Any donations would be greatly appreciated and will go towards building and maintaining schools for children in Mongolia. Thank you for any help you are able to give.

Hello from the back of a horse!
The Gobi Gallop is not just a once in a lifetime journey, but a journey where I can be a part of a team helping to feed and educate children of Ulaanbaatar. 100% of your donation will go to the Children of the Peak Sanctuary Kindergarten, providing children whose families subsist by scavenging the dumps of Mongolia’s capital with opportunities previously unavailable to them. Any amount can make a difference, and so I am happy to help in fundraising for this great cause. Outside of horses, I work for a company investing in agriculture around the globe. Our investments help provide pensioners their retirement and support local, rural communities. I am proud to be part of this team now, helping the Ulaanbaatar community. I am excited to be a part of this great organization and cannot wait to begin my adventure across the Steppe. Please consider being part of my journey and help keep the school open for another year by donating through my page today – any amount will help in these children’s lives! My fundraising goal is $3,500 through donations and fundraising events. Please join “Team Melissa” and make a difference forthe children and families living in abject poverty and scavenging in the garbage to survive.
