I am very excited to announce that this winter I will be training for my first marathon. On April 17th, I will be running the 121st Boston Marathon and fundraising for the David Ortiz Children’s Fund. I have chosen to run my first marathon to raise money for children who need lifesaving surgeries. Growing up, my sister was born with a rare genetic liver disease. Having a successful transplant gave her a second chance at life. This miracle was not only made possible by doctors and medicine, but by fundraising through the Boston Marathon in which my father ran for multiple years. Being thankful for the funding she received I would like to give back to the children that are in need of critical pediatric services
The David Ortiz Children’s Fund was founded in 2006 after the Red Sox historic season by 3-time World Series Champion David Ortiz. The DOCF is dedicated to raising funds that enable children in the Dominican Republic and the Northeastern United States to have access to the pediatric critical care they need to live full, productive lives. To date, the DOCF has netted approximately $2 million in an effort to combat life threatening pediatric illnesses and saved over 500 lives in the Dominican Republic and countless others in the New England area.
As a team member of the David Ortiz Children's Fund, I am committed to raising at least $7,500 of the David Ortiz Children's Fund's goal of $340,000. My connection to the cause, will help make my 26.2 mile run in April 17, 2017, an even greater accomplishment. I am writing to you today to ask for you support in donating to my campaign for the 2017 Boston Marathon.
