Thank you so very much in advance for your kind donation.
Hurricane Sandy was the most brutal natural disaster to hit the tri state area in decades. It is estimated that 30,000-40,000 New Yorkers and countless more in New Jersey are homeless and that there was upwards of $50 billion of damage. As I am sure you have read in the press, Congress is dragging their feet, so we have come together to help NOW!
As local tri-staters, our families and friends have been massively affected by the storm and a group of us has come together to do what we can to help.
We are putting together a team to run the New Jersey Marathon on May 5, 2013 to raise awareness and donations for the victims of Hurricane Sandy. We have partnered with the Community Foodbank of NJ and have set a goal of $20,000 for our team. While the race is still a few months out, we ask that you please consider making a donation as soon as possible as the victims of the storm can use the help today.
Thank you very much in advance for your time and consideration.
