BENEFITING: MONTCLAIR FREE PUBLIC LIBRARY FOUNDATION INC
EVENT DATE: Nov 03, 2013
Hello family, friends, and supporters!
I am so excited that you are visiting my fundraising page! Last year, you helped me raise almost $9,500 for the Montclair Public Library. As you may remember, the NYC Marathon last year was canceled due to Hurricane Sandy BUT the Montclair Public Library stayed open 24 hours a day to help the community. Even though the NYC Marathon was canceled last year, I ran the Philadelphia Marathon that year (Nov. 18th). This year, I'd like to support Montclair Public Library again as I prepare to run the NYC Marathon this November.
I decided to run for the Montclair Public Library with the hope that the library will help lay the foundation for this generation and future generations to learn and apply their acquired knowledge to help find the cures for diseases that afflict so many of our families and friends.
It is my hope that as an orthodontist who has been privileged to work with so many wonderful patients and families over the past 27 years, that I can rally some of them to this cause. It does not matter how much one gives; every little bit helps in a big way. I would be so happy if my patients donated 10 cents a mile ($2.60) to the Montclair Public Library. $2.60 not only helps the library, but equally important helps children become aware of the importance of supporting worthy causes.
Please donate as generously as possible through this site http://www.crowdrise.com/dredgold/fundraiser/edgold or send your check to the Montclair Public Library Foundation (50 South Fullerton Ave, Montclair, NJ 07042) http://www.montclairplf.org/ and please forward my message to anyone you think might support my cause. I promise I will do all of the leg work to reach my goal of 26.2 miles at the New York City Marathon on November 3, 2013. Very special thanks to Fleet Feet Montclair www.fleetfeetmontclair.com for the service they provide to our community and to Paul Giuliano www.runwithpaulg.com for his coaching expertise.
On behalf of myself and the Montclair Public Library, I'd like to thank you for your support.
