How much do I love the Clarke Schools for Hearing and Speech? Enough to run my first 5k ever and at the Philadelphia Zoo no less. That's right...6 days before my 40th birthday I will lead Team Philly Friedlands to a spectacular certain finish...probably somewhere in the bottom 1/4. I'm not making any promises but hey, you never know. My goal is to not finish dead last. How's that for aiming high?
As Chairman of the Board I could go into a lengthy description of the impact your donation will have on deaf and hard of hearing children, but instead, I am "sweetening the pot" with the following limited offers.
Increase the return on your philanthropic investment!
If you donate... I will do the following.....
$10 Whisper your name as I cross the finish line and point to the sky
$25 Reserve 1/2 dozen Katy Friedland Chicken's (KFC) eggs for you
$50 Take a selfie with an animal of your choosing at the zoo
$100 Name my next chicken after you
$250 Place a picture of you under my pillow for 1 week
$1000 Name a building after you in Philadelphia
I encourage you to bring your kids to the event...we had over 1,000 attendees last year. And if you need to prove that you can run faster than me, join my team or create your own!
