BENEFITING: FREE WHEELCHAIR MISSION

ORGANIZER: FREE WHEELCHAIR MISSION

EVENT: Honda LA Marathon 2012

EVENT DATE: Mar 18, 2012

Jane Chong

THE STORY:

Please donate before March 31, 2012 to support Free Wheelchair Mission (FWM)! RACE GOAL: 20 wheelchairs, or $1278.80.

During my last months in Bangkok in the spring of 2010, severe illness left one of my Mercy Centre students unable to walk for weeks. She had been battling HIV/AIDS for years, and like a number of her friends in House 6, she was forced to rely on being carried outside just to feel the sun's rays whenever a new and debilitating sickness attacked her immune system.

I will running my second marathon on March 18 for Cherie and the thousands of children who long every day for what you and I take for granted: simple freedom of movement.

Every $63.94 donated will provide a quality wheelchair to someone in the developing world. It would mean the world to me if you would consider contributing even a moment of thought and a pocket of change to the cause.

If you're reading this, chances are you donated to my 2010 run for Teach for America. Thank you so much for your support for this equally worth cause!

Interested in actually running for Team Mobility? Come bunk with me race weekend in Los Angeles and join me in supporting Free Wheelchair Mission. Feel free to toss questions my way if this sounds like something for you.

Free Wheelchair Mission - our mission is to provide the transforming gift of mobility to the physically disabled poor in developing countries.
