EVENT DATE: Nov 03, 2013
I truly could not be more excited about the opportunity that I have been presented with to support AmeriCares by both fundraising and by promoting the organization while training for and running the 2013 NYC Marathon!!
AmeriCares is an organization that I personally was introduced to a little less than a year ago when it stepped up to the plate and delivered more than $6 Million in disaster relief aid to over 450,000 of my neighbors in Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, and New Jersey. The critical aid that AmeriCares provided to those in need included insulin, vaccines, bottled water, diapers, sleeping bags, flashlights, and various medical supplies. It’s no secret that organizations like this cannot exist without the efforts of thousands of volunteers and of course the generous financial support from those who can afford to help.
While running the NYC Marathon this fall will be the thrill of a lifetime for me – I also believe that it is a fitting opportunity for me to raise money to support the organization that did so much to help the residents of the very neighborhoods that I will be running through on November 3rd.
Please consider supporting me in raising money for AmeriCares with a financial contribution.
