BENEFITING: Hudson River Sloop Clearwater

ORGANIZER: Todd

EVENT DATE: May 12, 2012

THE STORY:

Hi everyone! I have decided to join ultrarunner Todd Jennings in an effort to bring attention to the need for clean water and, more specifically, a clean Hudson River. Todd will be running the length of the Hudson River (315 miles) in 8 days and is fundraising for the Hudson River Sloop Clearwater, an organization whose mission is to preserve and protect the Hudson River.

I plan to join Todd for the final leg of his endeavor, running from Nyack to NYC on May 19th (33 miles total). If you are interested in supporting this cause, you are welcome to sponsor me on a per mile basis (50 cents per mile = 16.50 total, $1 per mile =$33.00 total etc.) or with a flat amount. Every bit will help!

Please read below for more detailed information:

In an effort to bring attention to the need for clean water - and in particular, clean rivers - ultrarunner and lifelong New York State resident Todd Jennings will be running the entire 315-mile length of New York’s Hudson River in May of 2012. The run will begin at Lake Tear of the Clouds, on the face of Mt. Marcy (New York’s highest peak), and will finish at The Battery in New York City. The endeavor will take 8 days, averaging approximately 40 miles per day, and is a fundraiser for Hudson River Sloop Clearwater.

Donations can be made on a "per mile" basis (10 cents = $31.50, 25 cents = $78.75, and so on...) or as a flat amount, which could be as low as $10.00 or as high as you would like.  My personal goal is to get at least 500 people to sponsor me at $0.33 per mile (a $100.00 contribution).  This alone will eclipse our target!
