BENEFITING: GRASSROOT SOCCER
My good friend Greg Meyers sent me a challenge early in 2012 that he and his wife, Emiko, will be running the "full" 26.2 Mile Detroit Marathon on October 21st. He invited his friends in the Detroit area to join him. With Greg's prodding, I have committed to run the Half Marathon (13.1 miles). I wanted to take this personal challenge and use as another way to make friends, family, work associates and strangers aware of Grassroots Soccer, a non profit that is doing great things to fight HIV.
Here are two websites for you to learn more about the Grassroots Soccer and the good work they are doing and leveraging soccer as the medium to stop the spread of HIV.
Please consider donating whatever you can to this great cause through the crowdrise site. My goal is to raise $1,000 between now and race day, October 21st.
I know we can do it!
Thank you for your support.
