EVENT: 2013 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 15, 2013
Dear Family and Friends,
I never thought in a million years I would ever run the Boston Marathon. However, that is exactly what I will be doing this year on April 15th. I am proud to be one of 100 runners part of the Tufts Marathon team who will be making the 26.2 mile journey from Hopkinton to Boston to support nutrition, medical, and fitness programs at Tufts University, including research on childhood obesity. As the token “older” Army War College Fellow to the group, I have committed to an initial fund raising goal of $1,500.00 for this important cause.
With your powerful support, together we can contribute to creating effective public health solutions. Please support me in my commitment to running the 2013 Boston Marathon by making a tax-deductible gift online that your lifestyle will support. And who doesn’t want to reduce their taxes while supporting a great cause? Every donation is one-step closer to a healthier tomorrow for everyone. If you prefer or are distrustful of the internet, you can mail in the pledge form to pay by check or credit card offline.
If you have any questions for me, please do not hesitate to email me at email@example.com.
I am thankful for everyone’s support,
