BENEFITING: Esperanza Health Centers
ORGANIZER: Esperanza Health Centers
EVENT DATE: Oct 12, 2014
This year I'm doing something different in hopes to make a difference in someone's life. I am running a marathon this year with a charity and a goal to raise $3,000 for Esperanza clinic who is known to help over 21,000 children or families who can not afford health care.
My family and fellow colleagues understand that I am doing this from my heart, and I truly believe in my heart that with the help of everyone I can easily reach my goal.
I am asking you to sponsor me by mileage. 1 mile for $30, 2 miles for $60, or 3 miles for $100. If you pledge 3 miles I will gladly wear your name on my shirt (on the event date). Any donation will kindly be appreciated. I encourage everyone to please help me reach my goal with a minimum of $10. Any token of your generosity is a blessing in my eyes or someone's health.
This year I will be running proudly to know that I have so many supporting me and my charity. So a big a THANK YOU to every sponsor from the bottom of my heart. And I pledge to run this year with the "Esperanza" to make a difference!
