Thank you for visiting my fundraising website! I have always wanted to run the NYC marathon. In reaching this personal goal, I would also be honored to raise money for an organization that is very meaningful - the Samaritans of NYC.
The Samaritans of NYC is a non-profit, volunteer organization whose sole purpose is to provide support to those individuals and groups who are in crisis, have lost someone to suicide and/or are feeling suicidal. Samaritans offers a 24-hr suicide hotline run by volunteers. Unfortunately, NYC has threatened to cut the budget for Samaritans, which could ultimatley close down the organization.
I volunteered for the Samaritans for 1.5 years and it's an organization I truly support, and hope you will consider donating to its cause. Any amount is very much appreciated.
