Half Marathon Complet
April 17, 2016
BENEFITING: Manitos Inc
EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2016
I am running the More Half Marathon on April 17 in NYC to raise money for Manitos - http://manitosparaguay.com our charity which helps children with cancer in Paraguay. The INC cancer hospital treats 100 children per year, often in advanced stages of cancer. The current goal of $10,000 will go directly to our newest project to build a housing facility, "Posada Emily," for families of children being treated at the INC. Currently mothers and other family members are sleeping wherever they can, including on the floor of the hospital rooms. The "Emily House" will provide beds, cooking facilities and a safe space for 6 families dealing with the uncertainty and anxiety of cancer treatment. The majority of patients are have come to the hospital as a last resort and cannot afford treatement.
