BENEFITING: World of Children Inc
EVENT DATE: Nov 02, 2014
Friends & Family, Guys & Girls,
As some of you know, I have officially registered to run the New York City Marathon 2014. I received the all clear on some pretty epic health problems in 2012, and haven't had a smooth run through 2013/14 but every day I get stronger. Thanks to sheer luck of the draw I was blessed enough to have treatment, recover, go back to studying, and travel a pretty big chunk of the world while I finished my degree.
Unfortunately, I've met a lot of children all over the world, everywhere from Fiji to Morocco, Turkey to Vietnam, who would give anything to be told they could simply afford to be treated for an illness. I've met children who wouldn't even dream of the opportunity to go to school. So, to make this 26.2mi (42km) really worthwhile I've decided to raise funds for World of Children (worldofchildren.org) who provide funding and recognition to some of the most awe-inspiring individuals in the world.. The sheer selflessness of this organisation is amazing, and I would be blessed and honoured if you could give anything, no matter how small, to help out.
