Susan Pung's Fundraiser:

2015 Disney Team Sparrow's Nest

THE STORY:

This year I have decided to run the half marathon in Disney.  Here is my story:

Learning about Sparrow’s Nest had a profound effect on me.  I remember feeling awe-inspired emotions.  Krista's selflessness rendered me speechless, which is a difficult task (anyone who knows me would agree)!

As a mom of two children I can relate to how important it is to keep my boys nourished and cared for—the Sparrow’s Nest name explains this sentiment perfectly!  Krista and her team are caring for kids by helping families, especially sick moms, "protect their nest" and carry the unfortunate load that sickness brings with it. 

I feel blessed to know someone as generous as Krista, to have such an amazing charity in my own community, and to have been asked by my friend Carrie Eirish to be a part of this half marathon-I know she’s going to beat this illness, especially with the support of Sparrow's Nest!  Go Team Carrie!!!

Please consider donating on this page, but know that there is a fee added to each donation.  You can also send the donation directly to:  Sparrow's Nest Charity, 942 Route 376 Suite 217, Wappingers Falls, NY 12590 

Don't forget to put my name in the memo section of the check to make sure your tax deductible donation gets added to my total.  Thank you!

Join our team for our 2nd annual Disney Wine and Dine Half Marathon!!!!  Your fundraising efforts will help Sparrow’s Nest expand their services further into New York.

Our mission is cooking and delivering meals to the families of moms with cancer in many areas of the Hudson Valley.   Sparrow’s Nest provides 2 homemade trays of food to our recipients each week.  

Your thoughtful donation today means the world to a family in need.  It means a sick mom can get extra sleep.  It means a child can have a healthy meal while mom focuses on getting better.  It means a grocery bill can be cut in half while a family’s expenses blow up on copays and out of pocket medical expenses.  It means more than you can imagine.
