Red Bulls midfielder/defender represented the club at the World Malaria Day reception and dinner held on April 20 in Washington DC.  The well attended event helped raise awareness for this disease (For those of you paying attention, that IS Molly Sims next to Danleigh), and with World Cup almost here in Danleigh’s home country, this is especially important to him.

World Malaria Day – April 25, 2010 – provides an unprecedented opportunity for the U.S. malaria community to unite against malaria. The UN Foundation and its Nothing But Nets campaign are uniting with global malaria partners to build upon the growing momentum to end malaria in the lead up to the 2010 FIFA World Cup, the first time it will be played on the African continent. By acting now, we can help save millions of lives by sending more nets than ever and working to achieve the global goal to end malaria deaths by 2015.

For the first time, a unified action is being planned for World Malaria Day among grassroots malaria and advocacy organizations, providing an opportunity to come together and celebrate the progress on malaria, while also calling for strong continued government support to end malaria deaths by 2015. By inviting all organizations engaged in the global fight to end malaria to participate, World Malaria Day 2010 will raise awareness on the issue of malaria as never before.
