As some of you may know, I am running in my 4th New York City Marathon this year. When I entered last year I thought I would go through the motions like all the other races I have entered, with a haphazard training regime that normally starts a few weeks before the race with a lot of self promises that I will train harder next time. Well this year has been different. During the year I teamed up with the St. George's Society in order to add a purpose to my run and raise money for them (read: I woke up one morning to a text message thanking me for agreeing to run for the St. George's Society with little recollection of making the promise!)
In all seriousness though, it’s a fantastic charity that does so much good work for those who are in need. I am sure the majority you would like to do more for charitable causes / reduce tax bills, so here is your perfect chance to donate and feel better about yourself as you watch elite athletes (and me) get themselves around a, much more hilly than you would think, 26.2mile course through the 5 boroughs of New York City. Any donation is going to make a difference to someone’s life less fortunate than yours and it only takes 2 minutes to complete.
Thanks for your support! You will receive an email confirmation of your donation as soon as it is made, which is fully tax deductible.
