Nils' Marathon for Oasis
Organized by: Nils Heimes
EVENT DATE Nov 02, 2014
I'm competing in the TCS NYC Marathon on November 2 in support of the OASIS Organization and their goal to open a school for individuals with special needs.
OASIS - Organization for Assistance and Integrated Services for Individuals with Special needs was founded by my parents in law, Celma and Dercio Vilela in 1998 in Varginha, MG, Brazil. The organization helps children, teenagers, adults and seniors with disabilities , Pervasive Developmental Disorders (PDD) , Giftedness and vulnerable at risk. In 2011 Oasis started to build a new space - a place for education, therapy and living. My parents in law truly make large sacrifices to help those who are less fortunate and to provide hope for those in need.
If you can make a donation of $25, $10 or even any smaller amount, we will be that much closer to our goal and making a difference in the lives of some pretty amazing people. Every dollar makes a difference so there is no donation too small.
My promise to you: I will run my ass off to finish this Marathon. And if I do, Poly and I will top off the account with an additional $26.2 for every completed mile. If you made the math - this rounds up to an additional $686 if I finish that thing!! My Bib Number is 47831 so you can track me during my run via the marathon app.
