BENEFITING: Team IMPACT
EVENT DATE: Apr 18, 2016
I am running the Boston Marathon to support Team IMPACT, a non-profit that matches children with life threatening and chronic illness with college sports teams. Team IMPACT children are drafted onto local college sports teams where to the greatest extent possible, they become official members of the team. In-season, they are included in games, practices and other team events and in the off-season, they continue to build strong relationships through activities such as hospital visits, birthday parties, trick-o-treating, movie outings and much more. Through the relationship the kids are provided a team-based support system to help them continue to battle through their treatment and the student-athletes gain a perspective that can't be taught on the field or in the classroom.
You might say, "this seems odd that Molly is just starting her fundraising campaign with 36 days left to go before the marathon". And yes, it is suprising for me too! But when a last minute opportunity opens a door, you put on your shoes and head out the door. So with only 5 weekends to run, I am sprinting to the starting line.
I appreciate your support so much and want to give back to all contributors:
$10 and under - My eternal gratitute and a handwritten note expressing my thanks for your support in helping me get across the finish line.
$20 - A video message from one of the 4 long runs I have left as well as a hand written note.
$26.20 - The best part of distance running is eating what ever you want (right???). All donors will receive homemade baked goods along with all previous incentives
$50 - A raffle ticket for the Patriots prize pack along with the previous incentives
$100 - I'm running for the more than 900 kids matched through Team IMPACT. Now you can run for them in a Team IMPACT t-shirt and all other incentives.
$250 - Let's go on a run together! For extra incentive I will even memorize your favorite song and serenade you through the miles. If you're feeling dehydrated after our run, we can refuel with a local brewski. Plus everything else above.
$500 - Attend a local Team IMPACT draft day. When the next Team IMPACT superstar gets drafted you'll have a front row seat. A team IMPACT rep will be in touch as draft days are planned to find an event that works with your schedule. All other incentives included as well.
$2000 - A weekend vacation in a five-bedroom home in Sandwich, NH. Bring all your friends! Enjoy days of hiking in the Sandwich range and swimming in Squam Lake and other local watering holes. And everything else!
