BENEFITING: United Way of Western Connecticut Inc.
EVENT DATE: Mar 24, 2013
My heart is broken for all the victims and families affected by the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, CT - especially for the children who have left us so prematurely and needlessly. Newtown is just 30 miles from my home and I already have neighbors who were personally affected by the horrific crime.
There is little we can do now except offer help to the families still in need and honor the memory of the special people who were taken from us on that day - including 20 innocent children.
On March 24th, I will be running my very first marathon, which starts in Cape May, NJ and ends in Sea Isle City, NJ. I want to raise funds for United Way of Western Connecticut, a registered 501 (c) (3) public charity who has set up an account in Newtown to help affected families and honor the memory of the victims. I have a lot of training before me, but I am absolutely committed to do what I can to help - both physically and mentally. Please support my effort by making a generous donation today!
