ORGANIZER: SPARROWS NEST OF THE HUDSON VALLEY INC
EVENT DATE: Nov 07, 2015
Thank you for taking the time to visit my CrowdRise Page. November 7th, 2015 I will be running my very first Half Marathon with Team Sparrows Nest. I dedicate my run to my extremely strong mother Jean Hulbert Schreiber. When I was a teenager, my mom was diagnosed with kidney cancer. One memory that comes to mind was when my mother was in the hospital for her surgery. She was not able to come home in time for Thanksgiving. So my Father, my twin sister Janet, my younger sister Heather, and my younger brother Walter along with other family members and friends did our best to make Thanksgiving dinner and brought it up to her to celebrate together. I think of Sparrow's Nest in this way. Sparrow's Nest is family that makes trays of food for its family members that are too sick to make it for themselves and their children. Sparrow's Nest makes it Thanksgiving each week for the sick mother's or father's and their loved ones by delivering to them two trays of food. I pledge to raise $3000.00, for Sparrow's Nest and I ask you for your help in reaching this goal. Please find it in your hearts to donate. Do it in honor of someone you love, that you would have wished could have been brought in to "the nest" , or for someone you know that has been lifted up and taken in by this amazing charity. The more we raise, the more families the Nest can feed.
Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with GREAT love.-Mother Teresa
