Dear Family + Friends, There are many opportunities these days to show your support for many worthy causes. I'm asking you to support me as I work to bring new friends to Park Center. Since 1984, Park Center has provided services to people who are struggling to recovery from mental illness. Recovery is possible and with the right support, people can find healing and a way to become contributing members of the community again. I am raising funds to fill at least 5 backpacks with personal hygiene products and basic clothing (i.e. underwear, undershirt, socks, etc.) for individuals exiting the street and entering Park Center's shelter programs. Each filled backpack will cost $85.00. My goal is to raise a total of at least $425.00 - all funds raised will go towards filling these much needed backpacks. If we reach or supercede this goal, I will be running my first 5-mile race - The Boulevard Bolt - on Thanksgiving Day (November 24, 2011). If you're able to donate $25.00, $50.00, or $85.00 there are some added incentives to doing so! $25.00 - I'll write your name on my arm or leg for race day; $50.00 - I'll write your name on my leg on race day and you'll receive 6 chocolate-chip buttercream sweet between goodies (vegan or gluten-free if requested, and hand-delivered or shipped to your door); $85.00 (one filled backpack) - I'll wear your name on my race day t-shirt and you'll receive a gift certificate redeemable for 12 homemade goodies from my baked goods business, sweet betweens. Thank you in advance for your support and if you would like more information about the programs offered at Park Center, like them on Facebook or visit the Park Center website.
