Edward Norton is working to raise $1 Million dollars a mile for the NYC marathon in November for many great charitable organizations. In the spirit that - imitation is the highest form of flattery - let's try the same thing for the Georgia Marathon!
The fundrasing goal has been slightly reduced :) and the number of charities narrowed down to one, but the intent is the same.
Let's see if we can bring together a team of people who love to run races and are inspired and motivated when they know they are supporting a great cause.
Think about it - if we can just get 150 people to join our team (1% of race entrants) to raise $200 each then we've easily broken the goal. Let's give it a try!
The non-profit we are supporting is The Robert J. Nessen Pancreatic Cancer Foundation, Inc. which funds research into the causes and early detection of Pancreatic Cancer. The foudation was started in in memory of my Father, his fight with PC, and is in support of the current Pancreatic Cancer survivor community.
Let's see if CrowdRise.com can help us reach our goal!!
