BENEFITING: Operation Access
ORGANIZER: Operation Access
EVENT DATE: Jul 29, 2012
As some of you may know, I am running the San Francisco Half Marathon on July 29, 2012, for the first time, as a member of team Operation Access. In the past few years, an increasing number of people have lost their health insurance and have limited access to healthcare services. These are people who are simply trying to make ends meet, provide for their families, and care for their children. A health problem, like a hernia, can become a major obstacle if they are not treated. It can lead to job loss, deterioration of quality of life, emergency situations…and, often, despair. Operation Access brings healing and hopes to people in need, and demonstrates that the impulse for doing good works is alive.
It would mean a lot to me if you would donate to this worthy cause and give back to the community. My goal is to reach $1,000 for team Operation Access. All contributions are 100% tax-deductible. When you make a donation, be sure to save the receipt. Any donation amount is appreciated.
To make your donation, simply click the link below or send a check! Once donated, your names will be shown on my website. You have the choice to be anonymous if preferred. Many companies support their employees' donation to non-profit or community causes. Make sure to check if your company offers a matching program in order to double your impact! Also, feel free to forward this to anyone that might be interested.
Click the link below and select "DONATE" on your right tool bar. It will take you to CrowdRise - a secured payment platform devoted to 501(c) 3 charitable organizations. You have the options to use Visa, MasterCard or AMEX for your payments.
Thanks in advance for your generosity and support of our community! If you are around on Sunday, July 29, 2012, please come to cheer me on in the race and join us for a team celebration post-race.
