BENEFITING: International Rescue Committee
ORGANIZER: International Rescue Committee
EVENT DATE: Mar 19, 2017
Hi friends, family, and big-hearted people! I'm running the 2017 United Airlines NYC Half Marathon this March to benefit the International Rescue Committee.
The IRC supports people whose lives have been upended by conflict, war, and disaster, and focuses on building "high impact, cost effective" solutions in several areas, including education, health, safety, personal empowerment, and economic wellbeing.
In particular, I have been thinking about how grateful I am to live in such relative peace and comfort while tens of thousands of people have had to flee Aleppo amidst heartbreaking violence and destruction.
Please consider making a donation. Every dollar counts, and in addition to helping those in need, you'll have my extreme gratitude for your support! xo, CBJ
