THE STORY:

Help me support Peruvian children and their families in need in a novel way!

 

I am running the 2017 Big Sur Marathon as a fundraiser for the Children of Peru Foundation (http://www.childrenofperu.org), a highly respected organization which supports local organizations in Peru in providing educational and medical assistance to needy children.  I am also using this run (my first marathon!) to mark turning 50 years old.  Combining these two is perfect as it makes running the marathon a collective offering rather than simply a personal achievement as I move into a collective-focused phase of life.

 

I have traveled in Peru, including the city of Cusco where at least two of the organizations supported by Children of Peru Foundation operate.  The kindness and generosity that I experienced in Peru, especially from those who have so little and ask for even less, makes me extremely excited to raise funds and give back to an incredibly welcoming and generous land.

 

Please consider making a donation in whatever amount is comfortable for you, no matter how large or small.  While my goal is $1000, I would love to exceed this amount and benefit even more lives.  

 

Running a first marathon at 50 might sound like taking on more than is possible, but I believe it is much like helping everyone in the world who is in need -- the more we attempt and find we can do the impossible, the more possible everything becomes.
