“It always seems impossible until it's done.”
― Nelson Mandela
I have decided to run my very first (and maybe last!) marathon on November 3rd of this year in the famous ING New York City Marathon. In honesty, I had no intention of running a marathon any time soon but I couldn't turn down the chance to help GOAL, knowing the fantastic work that they do. I had never thought I'd be able for a marathon but I just did my first 20 miler this weekend so I'm getting there slowly but surely!
I will be running the marathon in association with the charity GOAL USA to help raise both funds and awareness for GOAL’s lifesaving work across the world. GOAL is an international humanitarian agency dedicated to the alleviation of suffering for people across the globe. Since its inception, GOAL has spent in excess of €790 million on humanitarian programmes in more than 50 countries. Over 2,800 GOALies and many thousands of local staff have worked in the developing world on GOAL’s behalf and the organisation has responded to every major humanitarian disaster since 1977. For more information on the charity check out the following link. http://www.goal.ie/Where_we_Work/120
I have committed to raising at least $3000 for the charity and would very grateful for your help and generosity! Any donation- no matter how big or small- is greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
