HERE'S THE STORY:
Team AmeriCares is running the 2013 ING New York City Marathon with a goal to raise $100,000 for deliveries of lifesaving medical and disaster aid to help people in crisis.
Historically, since 2010, for every $1 donated, we are able to deliver $20 in aid.This means that if we reach our fundraising goal, we can deliverup to $3 millionworth of humanitarian relief!

Let’s get more planes flying and trucks rolling to help people suffering in the wake of extreme poverty and disasters like the Oklahoma City tornado, Hurricane Sandy, the earthquakes in Haiti and Japan, the conflicts in Syria and Sudan.
