Thank you for coming here!
I just arrived in Big Apple, and to celebrate this, I decided to run the 2016 NYC marathon. There are basically two ways to run the NYC Marathon: register in a lottery or raise money for a charity. Running a marathon is a long journey, so I thought it deserves to be dedicated to a nice cause. I decided to raise funds for a charity called San Patrignano.
San Patrignano is a community that welcomes all who are suffering from drug and alcohol dependency and provides a supportive home as they regain their footing and eventually re-enter the world. San Patrignano is entirely free of charge to the person, family and government. At present, there are 1,800 persons from all over the world, including dozens of young men and women from the US, on the main campus in Rimini, Italy. It has a 72% success rate.
If you want to know more about San Patrignano, please visit: http://www.sanpatrignano.org/en
Any contribution of any size will be hugely welcome, motivating and appreciated and will hopefully see me across the line on the 6th November!
And do not hesitate to spread the word to your family, friends and colleagues.
Thank you for them.
