BENEFITING: The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
EVENT DATE: May 12, 2012
I am running the Santa Barbara Half Marathon (that's 13.1 miles...ugh!) to raise money for the organizations that helped my brother, Nick, and my family through Nick's leukemia in 2001-2002. I started training for this in August 2011, but before that I NEVER EVER ran, so this is a totally new challenge for me. But hey, if Nick could beat cancer when he was 13, I can run for a few hours, right?
I would like to raise at least $500 for each of the three organizations I've chosen. To sweeten the deal for you, I will match 25% of all donations made by race day, May 12, 2012!
By choosing just one of the three organizations I'm raising money for, you help keep transaction fees low. Note that they are already VERY low - around 6%, which is much lower than many organized events offer, meaning more of your donation goes directly to the organization. However, if you want to donate to more than one organization, you certainly may!
