On Sunday, November 4th, while millions of people forget to turn their clocks back for Daylight Savings Time, there will be over 100,000 people nervously checking their alarm clocks while getting calls from their mom to be sure they are on time for the ING New York City Marathon, one of the largest marathons in the world.
This year, we'll have members of Team Angelwish scattered throughout the event. These Angels have generously decided to dedicate their time and resources to run on behalf of Team Angelwish in the 2012 ING New York City Marathon.
Support our Team Angelwish Runners as they run to improve the lives of chronically ill children in need! Choose a team member below to help them reach their fundraising goal.
Thank you for your support! Go Team Angelwish!
Angelwish is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for underserved children living with chronic illnesses. Founded in 1999 as a unique solution to meet the needs of thousands of HIV/AIDS infected and affected children, Angelwish expanded it's mission in 2010 to include children living with chronic illnesses. Children with chronic illnesses (including HIV/AIDS, diabetes, asthma, sickle cell disease, epilepsy, autoimmune disorders, and kidney disease, among others) are all too often robbed of the joy their childhoods should contain as their conditions often require frequent medical treatment and/or hospitalization. Angelwish works to counteract this by providing holiday and birthday gifts and other forms of psychosocial support. When possible, we look to create the most value from every donation by including an educational aspect to teach schoolchildren about philanthropy and giving back.
