Dear friends and family -
In honor of my upcoming 40th, I’ve decided to check a big item off my bucket list; the New York City Marathon! Obviously this is a big deal for me and I’ve already been training for a few months. But here’s the thing; I can’t do it without your help. In order to get into the prestigious event, I committed to raise $3500 on behalf of the Chris Klug Foundation (CKF).
CKF is an amazing organization created by Chris Klug to raise awareness for organ and tissue donation. Chris is a dear friend and has quite an inspiring story. He is an Olympic-medal winning snowboard racer who received a life-saving liver transplant 16 years ago. He is still the only organ donation recipient to win a medal. I am honored to get a spot on this team and have the opportunity to raise funds for this important cause.
The race is less than 3 months away (November 6th) and am working my way into shape for this challenge. I was thrilled to run a quick 5k race with my mom recently in Maine and will run a half marathon near home later this month. But the part I really need help with is fundraising. It’s not easy for me to ask for money, but I really can’t do this without your help. I’ve got a long way to go; please consider chipping in right now. Any amount would be greatly appreciated!
