Dear Family & Friends
For the first time in my life I am running a Marathon!!!!!! And you ask me why? To raise money for a wonderful cause that I support, The Friendship Circle. November 4th is the day I will run 26.2 miles in the NYC Marathon. Prior to the Marathon I am racing to raise awareness and support (money) for The Friendship Circle.
Thank you for taking the time to read this it means a lot to me. Regardless, if you can donate money for children with special needs and local teensI would greatly appreciate your support in my training! Also, a few forwarded emails wouldn't hurt :-) Lastly, I have enclosed further information regarding The Friendship Circle, my training/progress and the 3 other guys from Charlotte that I am running with.
A little about The Friendship Circle...
The Friendship Circle is an organization that helps form friendships between children with special needs and local teens. By doing this, the children with special needs feel a part of the community and the teens feel a sense of accomplishment. Friendship Circle currently has over 11,000 teens volunteering and 6,000 children with special needs participating in its programs nationwide.
A little about my training/progress...
Here is how you can help: Go to my page and DONATE!
You can also help spread the word about our campaign by using Email, Twitter, or Facebook to send your friends the link to my campaign and ask them to donate. It’s for such an important cause and together we can help make a huge difference for these special children.
Thank you for supporting me and my great cause.
