BENEFITING: SPARROWS NEST OF THE HUDSON VALLEY INC
ORGANIZER: SPARROWS NEST OF THE HUDSON VALLEY INC
EVENT DATE: Nov 07, 2015
Wow - it seems like EVERYBODY has a Crowdrise page these days! And, well, I'm no exception. I've joined Team Sparrow's Nest for the 2015 Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon and my participation is going to feed the family of a mom with cancer for an entire year. True Story.
Having never run further than a 5k, this race will certainly be a challenge but I'm ready to put in the miles and make it to the finish line for all the sick mom's in our area who can't run at all.
The running part is tough, sure, but it's only symbolic. What really helps Sparrow's Nest is cold hard cash. So, I've committed to raising $2,800 to help ease the burden that cancer and its treatment put on families. To enable Sparrow's Nest to deliver home-cooked, healthy food every week for a year.
So this is where you - 215 of you to be exact - come in. I'm asking, hoping (and eventually begging) 215 of my friends and family to contribute exactly $13.00 each to my fundraising campaign. That's it. Just $13.00. That's a dollar for every mile. And in return, I will WEAR THE NAMES of every contributor during the race. So, in essence, for just $13.00 you can cross the finish line with me in Disney (but let's face it, I'm the one doing the heavy lifting).
All joking aside, please consider joining me in my fundraising efforts and supporting my run for Sparrow's Nest and mom's with cancer all over the Hudson Valley. You'll be making a big impact on real people who truly appreciate the help.
Thank you! XO
