BENEFITING: DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS USA INC
EVENT DATE: Feb 21, 2016
I'm running my first ever half marathon (Disney Princess Half, Feb. 21 2016) and hoping something good can come from it by raising money for charity. I hope to raise at least $500, but if all of my Facebook friends donated $13 ($1 for every mile I'm running) we could raise over $8000! Let's start the new year helping others together.
"What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead." - Nelson Mandela
