BENEFITING: BORGEN PROJECT
EVENT DATE: Oct 07, 2011
Hi! I'm going to run my first marathon, but I will need your support. The Mohawk Hudson River Marathon will be on Sunday, October 7th, 2012. Training will be tough while working full-time and being a full-time student, so I will need your help as motivation! 100% of the funds will go to the Borgen Project.
The Borgen Project is a Seattle-based nonprofit organization devoted to improving international development efforts. As Albany, NY's Regional Director, my job is to make sure everyone around me realizes that a) the U.S. could/should be doing so much more for developing countries, and b) it isn't very hard to do.
The Borgen Project is 100% volunteer-run, meaning your money will not be spent unwisely. 95% of donations are dispersed to various programs that aim to reduce global poverty, and the remaining 5% goes to supporting basic operating costs in the Seattle office. Electricity keeps us going!
