BENEFITING: Harlem United Community AIDS Center, Inc.
ORGANIZER: Harlem United Community AIDS Center, Inc.
So, despite promising myself to NEVER EVER RUN ANOTHER MARATHON AGAIN, here I am, running another one... but, hey -- I can explain!
You see, I'm doing this for a really amazing cause -- Harlem United -- an organization that helps a community in genuine need. This organization is dedicated to supporting the HIV positive population in Harlem, by providing neighborhood-based health care, supportive housing, and responsive human service. We're talking about hot meals, shelter, medication, counseling -- THAT'S REALLY IMPORTANT WORK. I'm not going to lie -- being poor in the US today is quickly becoming a death sentence, and it's up to invidivual people like you and me to help out. I know it sounds like a cliché, but every little bit helps.
Okay, so, to sum up -- I'm running 26.2 miles, you're helping Harlem United by giving whatever you're comfortable with, we all grab beers in November to celebrate.
So, we're good?
