BENEFITING: Sanctuary for Families
ORGANIZER: Sanctuary for Families
EVENT DATE: Nov 07, 2010
I believe we should all have the right to love without being hurt. And I believe the effects of violence in relationships lives on inside us long after the relationship ends. Sanctuary for Families deserves this $2,500 for the work they do. On top of that, not only would your entire donation go this AWESOME cause, but it supports my participation in the ING NYC Marathon on behalf of Sanctuary. I may have to drag myself across that finish line, but I will do it! Let's make it happen.
Sanctuary is the leading non-profit organization in New York State dedicated exclusively to serving the complex needs of domestic violence victims, sex trafficking victims, and their children. For 25 years, Sanctuary has provided life-saving shelter, legal, counseling, and economic stability services to thousands of victims. Last year alone, Sanctuary was a lifeline to over 10,000 individuals who came to them for refuge and support. The funds I will raise through my participation with their Marathon Team will support their many programs, and allow victims to receive the tools to safely move forward with their lives.
For the second consecutive year, Sanctuary is a proud Bronze Charity Partner of the ING NYC Marathon. This world class running event is an unparalleled way for Sanctuary to raise awareness and support for our work providing life-saving services to domestic violence victims and their children.
If you are running in the ING NYC Marathon 2010, and would like to dedicate your training to a worthwhile cause, Sanctuary for Families is asking you to sign up to fundraise for our work.
Every dollar you raise through your marathon fundraising campaign will help to end domestic violence in our communities by ensuring that victims and their children receive the needed services to achieve safety, and move forward with their lives.
We hope you will join us as you train for 26.2 miles on November 7, 2010.
With your help, we can continue to transform lives.
