I am running in the 2017 NYC Marathon and have decided to raise money for Direct Relief. Direct Relief is a charity that allows us to donate our money to current domestic and international issues taking place right now. These programs include Emergency Preparedness and Response, Maternal and Child Health, South America Flooding (Columbia and Peru), the Syrian Refugee Crisis, and now, helping victims of Hurricane Harvey. Direct Relief is also one of a handful of charities that received a perfect score of 100 from Charity Navigator. I set my goal at $1000 but would love to exceed that if possible. If you are interested in donating, please click the link and donate whatever you feel comfortable. Any amount would be going to a great cause and would be greatly appreciated!
