Thanks for checking out my fundraising page! I'm John Finegan, a junior at UNH and I've been running competitively for the past 6 years. This past spring, I ran in the Boston Marathon; I soared way past my personal goals and fell in love with the race. Now, thanks to my fantastic Aunt Patsy, I have a number for the New York Marathon on November 4th in support of the HOPE Program.
HOPE is a non-profit organization that helps less fortunate New Yorkers find, sustain, and grow careers and boost them out of poverty. Right now 1 in 5 New Yorkers live in poverty. 300,000 rely on a soup kitchen every week, and if these people are not helped, the problem will only grow with each new generation of children born into economically unstable families.
I hope (get it?!) to raise $3,500 to benefit the HOPE Program by running the New York Marathon and with help from friends and family I think it is an achievable goal. Any donation helps, and every penny of it will go to people in need. And if that doesn't get you going then know it will inspire me to run even faster!
