EVENT: 2012 ING New York City Marathon - $1 Mil a Mile

EVENT DATE: Nov 04, 2012

Brian Donovan

THE STORY:

As many of you know, I will be running in this year’s NYC Marathon.  I last ran the NYC Marathon in November 2010 to benefit Grassroot Soccer.  I have again been given a spot through the generosity of one of the founders of Grassroot Soccer, Kirk Friedrich, a good friend of mine from Marblehead.  I have committed to help raise funds for the organization in exchange for my entry into the race.

I have set my personal fundraising goal at $3,000 of the overall $300,000 target for the GRS marathon team.  The $3,000 will provide HIV prevention education for 127 youths.  I would appreciate it if you would consider pledging to this worthy cause.  Grassroot Soccer is a registered international nonprofit organization. All donations are tax-deductible.
