EVENT: Tough Mudder Tri-State 2016
EVENT DATE: Oct 08, 2016
Dear friends and family!
On October 8th I will be completing a Tough Mudder obstacle challenge for Team AmeriCares!
For those of you who don’t know, a Tough Mudder is a 10-12 mile obstacle course designed to test physical strength and mental grit. I will run, swing, climb and crawl along the way going up against obstacles with names like “Ladder to Hell” and “Ring of Fire” – all the while raising awareness and funds for an awesome cause.
AmeriCares is an emergency response and global health organization that saves lives and builds healthier futures for people in crisis in the U.S. and around the world. Every day, AmeriCares puts critically needed medicines and supplies in the hands of frontline health workers and develops innovative, sustainable health improvements in their communities.
AmeriCares has a deeply ingrained culture of resourcefulness and efficiency that promotes quick action and getting more done with less. Since it was established in 1982, AmeriCares has delivered more than $12 billion in humanitarian aid to 164 countries, including the United States.
It’s a great organization I have worked at for 9+ years and I am proud to be part of Team AmeriCares for this race. As a team, we are aiming to raise $5,000 to support AmeriCares global programs, and I am working towards an individual goal of $1,000. This is my second year doing this race. Last year I raised $1,700+ so I'm looking to beat that this year. Gifts of any size will help – and the AmeriCares model ensures your gift will be multiplied many times over. For example, gifts of $50 enable the organization to deliver roughly $1,000 in assistance to people in need!
I hope you’ll consider giving to my campaign, https://www.crowdrise.com/alexmaldonado, to help our squad achieve this goal and ensure that many more people in desperate communities around the world get the help they need. You can learn more about AmeriCares and its global mission at americares.org or by following the organization on social media on the handle @AmeriCares.
Thank you for your support and please let me know if you have any questions about the Tough Mudder program or AmeriCares. I’m looking forward to a great race day – only about 7 weeks to go!
