Hey Everyone and thanks for stopping by my NYC Marathon Fund raising page in aid of GOAL USA.
On Sunday the 3rd of November I will run my first ever marathon in New York City. I have always wanted to run at least one marathon in my life so I could not pass up on the opportunity to run in the New York City marathon while helping a charity organization like GOAL.
My goal (pardon the pun) is to raise $5,000 and every dollar is going to an extremely worthy cause.
GOAL is an international humanitarian agency dedicated to the alleviation of suffering amongst the poorest of the poor. GOAL works towards ensuring that the poorest and most vulnerable in our world and those affected by humanitarian crises have access to the fundamental needs and rights of life such as food, water, shelter, medical attention and primary education. They were one of the first agencies on the ground when the earthquake hit Haiti in 2010 and they are still working on the ground in Haiti along with Afghanistan, Ethiopia and Syria to name but afew.
I would sincerely appreciate your support in helping me raise much needed funds for this charity. I would be grateful to anyone who can make any donation (no matter how big or small) and thankyou in advance for your kind support and generosity.
Watch this space closer to the race as I will post my bib number so anyone interested can track my progress. I am currently aiming for a sub 4 hour time and hope to get closer to 3:30.
