BENEFITING: Caring For Children Foundation of Texas Inc
As I slog through the final weeks of my marathon training, I'm asking you to help me. Not by waiting for me on the trail with a Gatorade bottle, but by donating at least $1 to the Care Van. The Care Van immunizes kids in underserved communities across Texas. If you received your immunizations as a child, good for you. And if your kids were vaccinated against measles, mumps, rubella, meningitis, HPV, chicken pox, etc., great! Immunizations are something most of us take for granted. The folks at The Caring for Children Foundation of Texas don't. And thank goodness. Since its launch in 1997, the foundation's Care Van program has provided 1.2 million immunizations to Texas kids who need them. It takes $10 to fully immunize a child. While raising $3,000 will cover only 300 kids, it's a step in the right direction. If you're grateful for your immunizations and you're able to donate, please do.
