Join the Pentagon MMA family and Washington DC area community in delivering HOPE to those who need it most!
A violent earthquake measuring 7.8 according to the US Geological Survey, struck Nepal on April 25, just 48 miles northwest of the capital Kathmandu. More than 8,000 were killed and nearly 18,000 were injured. This is the strongest earthquake to hit Nepal in almost a century, and the Nepali people urgently need your help.
On June 20, 2015, Pentagon MMA will be hosting our largest fundraising effort yet to benefit the victims of the earthquake. It will be a day for the community full of fun, family-friendly activities, including an In-House Kids' Tournament, Kick-a-Thon, Silent Auction, Self-Defense Seminars, Nepali food, BBQ, and more. Every single penny raised that day will go to Project Hope, which has been doing some amazing work on the ground in Nepal helping earthquake victims. Check out the following link for event details: www.fightfornepal.com.
Whether or not you are able to make it to our fundraising event, you can still help by donating through this page! Every single dollar donated makes a world of difference. As some of you know, Vivek Nakarmi, Pentagon MMA's Founder and President, was born and raised in Nepal. Most of his family still lives in Nepal and were affected by the earthquake, so this is also a personal request for help from Vivek.
Project HOPE has staff on the ground in Kathmandu coordinating long-term health support and the delivery of medicines and supplies following the recent massive earthquakes that hit Nepal. HOPE medical volunteers were quickly on the ground helping to treat the injured from the massive April 25th earthquake as well as those injured in the second major earthquake on May 12th. Five shipments of donated medicines, valuing nearly $6.7 million have arrived in Nepal. Several more shipments of needed medicines are planned. Project HOPE has a long history of responding to disasters, including major earthquakes in Haiti, Japan, Indonesia, China and Armenia. Please note that the donations provided through this page will go towards a restricted fund set up specifically to respond to the earthquakes in Nepal.
