BENEFITING: Saint Louis, Habitat for Humanity
ORGANIZER: Saint Louis, Habitat for Humanity
EVENT: GO! for a Cause
EVENT DATE: Apr 15, 2012
Following grad school I've had the opportunity to get involved with the wonderful things that Habitat for Humanity does for our community here in St. Louis. I started out by volunteering on job sites on the weekends which has been a blast. Most recently I've had the chance to work directly with future home owners, which couldn't be more gratifying! They have been so appreciative and inspiring.
Then I heard about the Go! St. Louis Marathon and decided to join the Habitat Team. We have beentraining together three times each week along with independent work outs an additional three days per week. We are about 6-8 weeks in now and the transformation and progress has been incredible! This will be my first run of this kind and I am stoked!
Now we have four very short weeks before the run! I realize I have not given the most reasonable notice on this request, but there are so many great people who will benefit from your donations. The donations are applied to the many costs and logistics of building homes for those who just need a bit of help right her in St. Louis. So, please donate what you can and know that your generosity is enormously appreciated by a fantastic organization and really good individuals.
Feel free to visist Habitat for Humanity St. Louis on the web. Get more info and maybe find something you'd like to be a part of! http://www.habitatstl.org/
