EVENT DATE: Sep 08, 2012
I recently decided to take of the challenge of running a 21k (half marathon) on September 8th in Liverpool, NY called Arc Race 2012. Being that it is only a month away and I have never run 13 miles in my life, I'm going to have to focus, train hard, diet, and be all around impeccably disciplined to achieve this goal.
As I was envisioning my training routine, I thought what better thing to do while I'm bleeding, sweating, probably crying, and icing than to raise money for a good cause! I have decided to choose to represent The V Foundation for Cancer Research. Throughout college my Fraternity dedicated a number of hours raising money for this fantastic foundation, and I would be honored to continue that tradition. To be honest we all know someone who has had their life changed by cancer, so please consider the below request.
Here is where you come in! While you are lying comfortably on your couch, or drinking a cold beverage in your hammock, I’m going to be pounding the pavement to help save lives (dramatics acknowledged) :-)! Though, all of my copiously donated fluids would absolutely not be worthwhile were it not for you!
If you are willing or at all able, please consider donating to this cause to raise money for The V Foundation. Feel free to sponsor per mile, or as a lump sum donation. My goal is to raise $1000 so any amount helps. Additionally, please share this with your friends to help reach the goal!
If you have any questions at all feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The V Foundation
Sincerely and with gratitude,
