THE STORY:

So many of you who know me, have heard me chat endlessly about by sister Ruth. After some encouragement to join her I said YES, and we’re tackling a Tough Mudder this coming April. The syndicate desk may say that rolling around in the dirt is a daily occurrence, but this really is a different beast. 
If you’re not familiar with the madness that is TM it’s a 10-12 mile course with 25 obstacles, including something charming called an Artic Enema (akin to a New York winter, without your clothes) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vh5HdPM_QuE

I know we are hitting Tax Season, but it’s some time since I’ve done a fundraising and the reason I write this note is for a cause close to my heart. The American Ireland Fund is a fabulous charity, that channels funding into peace and reconciliation, arts and culture, education and community development throughout the island of Ireland

One of the main efforts of the Fund is supporting a shared future in Northern Ireland, address sectarianism and violence by supporting initiatives that address the lack of understanding and respect for varying cultural and religious values; a stagnant economy that has inflicted long-term unemployment; and inadequate opportunities in education, employment and personal development.

It has an extensive presence here in the US, with chapters up, down and across the nation        http://www.theirelandfunds.org/overview

Thanks so much for your support and hope I make it to the finish line….alive
