EVENT DATE: Apr 16, 2012
I have been given the opportunity to run the Boston Marathon on behalf of the Salvation Army. As you know will all great opportunies comes fundraising!
The Salvation Army is so much more than that thirft store you got your ugly sweater at for your holiday party or that dresser for your college apartment. They are committed to helping those who are experiencing hardships, whether it be from natural disasters, loss of family member or loved one, victims of poverty and so much more.
I feel so fortunate to have a loving family and my health and a roof over my head. So please take a minute to think of everything you are fortunate to have and if you can help me in my goal to help those who are experiencing these hard times, every little bit helps! Thank you so much!!
