BENEFITING: The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp
EVENT: Team HITW NYC Marathon 2015
EVENT DATE: Nov 01, 2015
Hi Friends, Family, And People In My Address Book,
If you know me at all or follow me on Instagram, you may be privy to the fact that I love running. If you haven't unfollowed me on Instagram because of said love of running (ummmmm completely unnecessary posts of GPS watches, sneakers, and Joan Benoit Samuelson), you may also know, particularly after this weekend, that I love camp.
On Nov 1st, I'll be running my who-cares-what-number blah blah NYC marathon and will be raising money for the third time for The Hole In The Wall Gang camps.
The Hole In The Wall Gang camps allow seriously ill children and their families to experience the wonder of camp. With hospital level care on site, kids who are usually too sick to be too far away from medical attention get TO BE KIDS in the great outdoors--laughing, playing, singing, and making unforgettable friendships and memories.
Founded by Paul Newman in 1988, HITWG camps encourage kids to "raise a little hell." So, as I've said in the past, I encourage you to help me "raise a little money" for the campers and their families (as the family members rarely get a break from the hospital, too).

Thank you all so much in advance.
