Event: 2012 Cumberland Ragnar Run
Over the past 10 years I have donated funds to a variety of worthy fundraisers. After donating recently to two such causes, I determined it was time to act on my own and organize a fundraiser to combat what I personally feel to be the greatest threat to mankind. Affecting all people across the globe (although in differing amounts), Climate Change will fundamentally change the world as we know it. 350.org seeks to build a global movement to solve the climate crisis with a goal of reducing the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere to below 350 parts per million.
To show my dedication to this cause I will be running the 2012 Cumberland Ragnar Run as part of a 12 person team. Over a day and a half, my team will run 200 miles, beginning in Cumberland MD and ending in Washington DC. Any funds raised to support our team will go directly to 350.org ("1 Sky Education Fund" recently joined 350.org and is the proper charity)
Your support is greatly appreciated (by everyone). Thank you!!!!!
