Our area has been hit severely from the effects of Hurricane Sandy. While I was inconvenienced without power for a few days. I feel blessed as there were others with more severe problems, some with damage to their homes, others left without homes to come back to, loss of loved ones.
I'd like to invite you to donate on my page through crowdrise to support those who've been affected by Hurricane Sandy and towards relief efforts to help those in need of food, shelter and clothing during this time.
I've trained long and hard for this year's marathon and I am not opposed to the marathon being post poned due to the relief efforts needed by the city. I am opposed to it being cancelled because there are so many people who participate every year through charitable organizations that help raise money and awareness to help those in need.
If you can please donate as it would be greatly appreciated by those who need it more.
Thank You Everyone!
Below are specifics to the charity I've chosen:
