THE STORY:

The Story: Since 1990, Housing Works has provided services including permanent and transitional housing, primary care, case management, meals, counseling, HIV prevention education, job training and legal assistance to more than 25,000 homeless and low-income New Yorkers living with HIV/AIDS. They do this with government and individual funding and support through a network of wonderful thrift stores (view the video at left).

My Story: I've been a longtime admirer of all that Housing Works. Some of you may have even met me for coffee at one of my favorite places in SoHo, the Housing Works Used Bookstore. Feeling strongly about this organization has made me decide that running 13.1 miles in support of them is the very least I can do. Now I'm asking you to also support me.

I don't fit the mold of what you may consider the typical runner. I'm slow but steady but will rock this half marathon! Not only am I running for Housing Works but I'm running to prove that we can all overcome obstacles and conquer what may seem challenging. If I can do it, then anyone can. :)

What's in it for you?

Still not ready to embrace/support the cause and throw a little cash in my direction? Well, I'm also so excited that you are supporting me that I'm throwing a few of my own incentives your way:

If you donate:

$5 - I will send you a cyber hug!

$10 - You can pick a song for my run playlist

$25 - I'll send you a postcard from Iceland

$50 - All of the above, plus I'll make you an awesome bead wrap bracelet and let you pick the colors

$100 - All of the above plus I'll send you a souvenir from Iceland

$250 - All of the above and I'll send you a pair of traditional Icelandic wool gloves, mittens, or a hat

$500 - All of the above plus I'll send/bring you back a bottle of Brennivin. Iceland's national liquor and not available yet in the US.

$1000 - All of the above plus I'll take you out to dinner. C'mon - just being my company is such a great reward, right  ;)
