Thank you for checking out my fund raiser page.
I am excited to announce that I will be running in the NYC 26.2 mile Marathon on Sunday Nov. 6 to help raise needed funds for Make-A-Wish® Western New York. Back in March I was lucky enough to be selected as a race participant through the marathon lottery. At least, at that time I felt lucky. Could I possibly cross this off my bucket list?
After 6 months of training, I felt pretty good about completing that distance, and at that time for additional motivation, I thought about running for a cause and I decided on Make-A-Wish. My goal is to help with the wish of a child with a life threatening medical condition. In the past, there have been wishes to attend the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade in New York City. The thought of a child enjoying the same streets of NYC that I am about to run down, will be a tremendous inspiration for me.
I have pledged to fundraise $1,000 to Make-A-Wish to help fulfill the wish(s) of those in need. With all the proceeds going to Make-A-Wish, I ask for your support in this cause. I know this time of the year is a difficult time to ask for a donation, so any small amount willbe most welcome.
Thank You for making a difference in a child’s life.
