BENEFITING: ANDREWS RESEARCH & EDUCATION INSTITUTE LLC
EVENT DATE: Sep 09, 2012
Hi! I wanted to tell you about a first of its kind opportunity I am participating in on September 9th at Tröegs Brewing Company in Hershey, PA. I have signed up to run in the first ever Hydroworx Underwater Marathon benefitting the Eagle Fund. The Eagle Fund is a non-profit foundation that helps wounded warriors by offering the highest quality of care possible. 100% of your donation goes to helping these “military athletes” on their road to recovery.
My goal is to raise at least $750 and I would love it if you could please help support me in my quest to run with the warriors. If you would like more information on the event, I would encourage you to check out the event website at www.underwatermarathon.com.
Any size contribution is appreciated no matter how small. You can go to http://www.crowdrise.com/JodisUMSupportTheEagleFundif you would like to donate online. If you would rather donate by check, please make it out in my name and in the subject line write “Underwater Marathon Donation.” Cash is also accepted, but please do not mail cash.
The Eagle Fund is a designated fund within the Andrews Research and Education Institute (AREI). AREI was granted tax-exempt status by the Internal Revenue Service functioning as a charity under 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Proceeds to the organization are deductible as charitable contributions. AREI's Federal I.D. number for donations is #26-3263612. To see their tax information go to http://www.underwatermarathon.com/assets/docs/tax-information.pdf
I will be creating a personalized beach towel that I will be using at the event. Companies or individuals can include their name or logo on the towel for the following amounts:
Main Sponsor (Will be the largest and at the top of the ads)… $500
Supporting Sponsors… Large Square is $300, Medium Square is $200 and a Small Square is $125
Veteran Memorial Square… $50 (Please include the name and branch of the soldier)
All donations need to be received by August 28, 2012. If you would like to donate in memory of a veteran, please include their name and branch with your information.
Thank you for your support! The soldiers and I are grateful!
