Hi family & friends!
I've been putting this off for a while now, and quite honestly have been too scared to commit, but a recent opportunity arose - and, well...I have chosen to make the the commitment of running my first marathon, the New York City Marathon!!!
I will be running on behalf of, Americares, a health-focused relief and development organization that responds to people affected by poverty or disaster with life-changing health programs, medicine and medical supplies. Each year, Americares reaches more than 90 countries and all 50 U.S. states with over $824 million in innovative health programs and quality medical aid. Americares is the world’s leading nonprofit provider of donated medicine and medical supplies. Since our founding in 1979 we have delivered more than $18 billion in humanitarian aid to 164 countries, including the United States.
I have a personal goal to raise at least $3,000 to support Americares' work and would greatly appreciate the support. Your donation is tax-deductible and no donation is too small!
I want to thank you in advance for your support, as this is going to be a very exciting period for me both physically and mentally! As I cross the finish line, I will be thinking about each and every one of you :)
