Thank you for visiting our fundraising page! This October, Johanna and I will be running the Newport Half-Marathon. As a team, we decided to raise awareness and fundraise for Direct Relief. We are nurses, who not only care for our patients within the hospital, but also want to help others in their time of need. Donating to direct relief will assist us in helping those who are less fortunate or who are affected by emergencies. Any donation is greatly appreciated!
