BENEFITING: Door County YMCA, Inc.
EVENT DATE: May 04, 2013
Hi family and friends!
As you all know, I've been bitten by the running bug, completing one marathon (see photo!), three half marathons, and numerous local races in the last two years. It's been fun, tiring, and sometimes painful, but overall incredibly rewarding. I've been fortunate to be surrounded by a community of inspiring runners, friends who have helped me log miles and pushed me to new distances. They have also inspired me to do what I am about to do for the first time... raise money for a great organization through running!
This year, I'm hoping to raise at least $250 for the Door County YMCA. The Y is an awesome organization. It provides a place for so many in our community to be active, from Shrimp Dip to Silver Sneakers. I have been a Y member since I was small, from ballet and swimming lessons to my more recent spinning classes and treadmill workouts. Right now the Y is trying to raise $457,000 for their annual Strong Kids campaign. The Strong Kids campaign supports numerous programs a the Y, from providing financial support to members to helping fund summer camp. (Check out www.doorcountyymca.org for more information on our local Y!)
If you'd like, please donate whatever amount you can to help the Door County YMCA reach its' goal for the Strong Kids campaign. If you'd like to donate through non-internet means, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you in advance for all of your support! I'll be thinking of you as I pound the pavement on May 4th.
