BENEFITING: Goal USA Fund

EVENT: 2012 ING New York City Marathon - $1 Mil a Mile

EVENT DATE: Nov 04, 2012

David Lewis

THE STORY:

A year ago, I was invited to a NYC fundraiser that helped shape my world view. There, I saw images and videos of the most needy people on the globe. I also met individuals (with and without means) soley dedicated to helping those in need. I was introduced to an organization called GOAL, whose mission is to provide relief and basic dignity to those without.

A few months ago, GOAL presented an opportunity to run the NYC marathon and raise funds for their cause. I jumped at this opportunity. After four months (573 miles) of training I can see the Central Park finish line! By the time the run is completed, I will have logged over 630 miles. Each mile run and dollar raised, represents a life that can be touched/changed/saved. I hope you will help.        

GOAL's mision is to feed, educate and help the poorest of the poor throughout the world. Since inception, GOAL has given (not just raised) over $700 million in direct relief to those less fortunate. My goal is to raise as much as possible and join in the fight to help these kids. Thank you so much for your support in this worthy cause!

(FOOTNOTE but important...Every doller raised is matched 9 times over by grants, donors and sponsors. I.e: If we raise $10,000, GOAL can access an additional $90,000 for relief efforts. Also, GOAL is proud of its low administrative costs. Less than 5% of monies doanted are used for admin. For every dollar received, $.95 is applied directly to the relief effort.
