As you may know, I started running last year, and completed two half marathons this year. In 2012, I will be running the Boston Marathon to support Cradles to Crayons. As a mother, I feel especially compelled to run on behalf of Cradles to Crayons. I feel very lucky that I am able to provide the essential items my children need, but there are many that struggle to keep their children in proper clothes during the winter.
So in this season of giving, I ask you make a donation to support my Boston Marathon efforts on behalf of Cradles to Crayons and to help provide winter coats to local children. Several months of training in the cold weather and completing 26.2 miles is my commitment. Imagine the impact your donation can make.
Thanks in advance for your support. Wishing you and your family Happy Holidays!
