Thanks for Getting Me to the Finish Line

BENEFITING: East Cooper Meals On Wheels Inc
EVENT DATE: Oct 16, 2016
Hi Friends! I've been training in Charleston's hot temps for the Brooklyn Greenway's October 16, 2016 Half-Marathon.
With my connection to both cities, Charleston and New York, I hope to raise money for: East Cooper Meals on Wheels (which supplies food/meals regardless of age or income to Charleston-area residents who are home-bound or unable to provide their own meals) and Fordham University's Dorothy Day Center (which connects students to service and social justice related community experiences in the Bronx & New York City).
The East Cooper Meals on Wheels does a fantastic job feeding so many hungry people, particularly seniors who can't otherwise easily be nourished. With Thanksgiving around the corner I am reminded of how critical this on-going effort becomes. Fordham's Dorothy Day Center's mission is to engage and excite students about giving back to those in need who live in the Bronx and other poor areas of NYC. This important message is one, if properly ignited within a student, can mean a lifetime of social awareness and kindness.
I am asking that you donate just $20, so $10 may eventually benefit each cause. Since Crowdrise doesn’t let me set up two charities (or split the donations), I will match your Meals on Wheels contribution dollar-for-dollar to Fordham.
Finally, I want to thank my family (parents, son and doggie [woof-woof]) for all of their support and thank you in advance! -Allie Farina
