EVENT: Honda LA Marathon 2012
EVENT DATE: Mar 18, 2012
I'm a Registered Nurse living in Los Angeles, CA. I've decided to finally check "run a marathon" off of my bucket list. So, LA Marathon 2012 it is! To keep me motivated to finish the race, I've joined Free Wheelchair Mission's TEAM MOBILITY to help raise money for free wheelchairs for people in impoverished countries.
Just $64 buys a really snazzy wheelchair that will empower someone with the gift of mobility and independence. These wheelchairs are durable and have rugged mountain bike tires, which is perfect for any terrain. They are distributed in over 81 countries to adults and children alike, many of whom need a wheelchair in order to provide for their family or attend school.
Any amount you can give will help, whether it's $5 or $50. Can you donate what you would spend on your lunch today or on Starbucks this week? How about loose change in your car or under your couch cushions? It all adds up and can make a huge difference in someone's life!
I love free wheelchairs! And those that receive them love them too.
