EVENT DATE: Nov 04, 2012
JAMAL IS DOING WHAT??!!
That's right folks I'm actually running the NYC Marathon!
It's for a damn good reason too, I'm running to support another huge soccer fan and general great guy Ethan Zohn's GRASSROOT SOCCER charity.
GRASSROOT SOCCER provides HIV & AIDS awareness and education to hundreds of thousands of youth around the world. Grassroot Soccer uses an interactive soccer-themed prevention curriculum to give young people the tools they need to protect themselves. The game of soccer has given me so much throughout my life, the least I can do is try to use soccer as a way to give back to the world. That being said I NEED YOUR SUPPORT!
You can help save lives by joining my Marathon Team and contributing to my total!! I know I have to do all the training, and the running, and the sweating, and the vomiting so I'm just asking you to do the easy part and donate. Click on the Donate Button of this page to support me and the efforts of the Grassroot Soccer team.
My personal goal is to raise $5000 and every dollar you contribute takes me that much closer.
Our Marathon run is the key to helping us reach 1 million educated and empowered youth by World Cup 2014! Every step, every training run, every contribution brings us closer to an HIV-free generation!
You are doing a great thing by donating, now if you'll excuse me I have to get my mind right for Sunday.
And yes, I will be expecting SEVERAL drinks after November 3rd.
