BENEFITING: The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp

EVENT: Team HITW NYC Marathon 2015

EVENT DATE: Nov 01, 2015

THE STORY:

Hello, friends! I’m excited to announce that I am running the 2015 New York City Marathon as a member of Team Hole In The Wall (THIW).  That means that I’m fundraising to benefit The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, a nonprofit dedicated to providing “a different kind of healing” to seriously ill children and their families. The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp operates a summer camp in upstate New York and does outreach year-round to more than 25,000 kids, with the aim of providing unobtrusive medical care alongside fun-filled experiences defined my compassion, laughter, and acceptance. For more information, please visit this link or watch this video.

  • Fun fact: The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp was founded in 1988 by actor Paul Newman, and its name comes from the western film “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” where Newman starred as the eponymous outlaw

After completing several marathons, I began to more ask myself why I run them. It started out that my goal was simply to finish. Then, I had my sights set on improving my time and hitting several benchmarks. My goal for this race is to “run less selfishly,” where I am not just running to feel good at the end or accomplish my personal goals. By committing to fundraise several thousand dollars for an organization about which I am passionate, I am turning this event into one where I can both accomplish my personal goals and do something benefitting others. Thank you for being a key to my success in this mission!

  • Fun fact: don’t worry; I still want to be able to run races fast for many years to come. Assuming my training goes as planned, my goal is to run a personal best at the NYC Marathon finishing under 2 hours and 55 minutes

As a thank-you to my supporters, I’m excited to offer the following perks to those who support at or above the levels below. Note that sponsorship of a given tier gets you the goodies of the tiers below it as well.

Tier 1: $26.20+ (The distance of a marathon): Photo recap of race weekend

Tier 2: $78.60+ (The distance of 3 marathons, since NYC will be my third race in the World Marathon Majors series): NYC Marathon mile dedication, where I will receive special inspiration during that point of the course and you will receive social media shout-outs and a written recap of that portion of the race

  • Fun fact: it is on my bucket list to run all 6 races in this series. Aside from New York City, I have already run Chicago and Boston; the remaining 3 are London, Berlin, and Tokyo
  • Please send me which mile you would like to sponsor (if all NYC miles are full, you can either share or select a mile in Chicago 2015/Boston 2016)

Tier 3: $157.20+ (The distance of 6 marathons, since NYC will be the 6th state in which I have run a marathon): NYC marathon swag of your very own from the race expo

  • Fun fact: the states in which I have run marathons include Oklahoma (2), Wisconsin, Illinois (2), Texas, and Massachusetts
  • Please provide your address for mailing

Tier 4: $258.56+ (My marathon personal best time is 2 hours, 58 minutes, 56 seconds): personal chef service, where I will cook a delicious 3-course meal for you and 3 guests in your home or mine

  • Fun fact: I ran this PR at the Chicago Marathon in 2014. It really helped that I could cook my own pasta dinner and sleep in my own bed the night before!
  • Please send me your logistical/culinary preferences (chef references furnished upon request)

I would be thrilled to discuss The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp or this upcoming race in more detail with you. Feel free to get in touch on social media, through email at evanjfry@gmail.com, or via phone at 312.203.5930. Thank you again for your support!
