BENEFITING: GRASSROOT SOCCER

ORGANIZER: GRASSROOT SOCCER

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

EVENT DATE: Nov 04, 2012

Steve Villa

THE STORY:

Dear Family and Friends,

Over the years, the thought of running the NYC Marathon has entered my head from time to time.  I have always shook it off as temporary insanity (or at least, a mild buzz).  Well, I'm not getting any younger.  Don't laugh too hard, as neither are you!  

Recently, I was introduced to the concept of entering the race as part of team as a way to raise money for a cause. What better way to commit to the challenge of running the marathon than publicly proclaiming that I'm going for it!  Please help me reach my fundraising goal!  Come on, join Team Villa and help support a great cause. 

Grassroot Soccer is in its 4th consecutive year as an official charity partner of the ING NYC Marathon! Their NYC Marathon Teams have raise over $1/2 million to provide HIV and AIDS education, testing a treatment to thousands of young people. Now Grassroot Soccer is moving forward with the official goal of reaching 1 million youth educated and empowered by World Cup 2014. 

Marathon runners, like me, are key to helping us reach the 1 million by 2014 goal! With every step, every training run, every contribution they secure we are getting closer to an HIV-free generation! 

Click on the Donate Button of this page to support the Team, or click on "Join the Team" to help raise funds. Donations can also be made offline by mailing a personal check to Grassroot Soccer at PO Box 712 Norwich, VT 05055. All offline donations will be added to the online page of the honoree to reflect the full total.

Check out www.GrassrootSoccer.org and our You Tube channel to learn more: http://www.youtube.com/user/grassrootsoccer

See you in New York on the first Sunday of November.

Thanks, Steve
