Dear Friends and Family,
My New Year's resolution was to try something new and out of my comfort zone, something that will not only challenge me but also bring awareness to a special cause. With the help of a colleague and encouragement from family and friends, I have decided to run the TCS NYC MARATHON on Sunday, November 5, 2017!
This marathon is not only a bucket list opportunity for me, but it is also a chance to raise awareness for a great charity called Pajama Program, an Official Charity Partner for the 2017 TCS New York City Marathon. Pajama Program is a nonprofit organization that provides the gift of pajamas and books to children in need so that they can enjoy the benefit of a loving and peaceful bedtime. I am blessed to be able to provide these gifts and a simple yet important bedtime ritual to my girls Mercy and Rheagan every night, and I am eager to help extend this blessing to other children.
I am asking for your support to make this happen. I need to raise $4000 by October 23, 2017, and while I know many of you already generously give to other causes, I am asking you to contribute however much you are able to this one, and not only support me in my first ever marathon, but to also support a unique and compassionate organization.
Pajama Program runners will raise critical funds to provide children with the tools for a loving bedtime and a good night, which leads to a good day. Pajama Program knows that a loving good night can lead to a better day for a child. After all, good nights are good days.
Pajama Program is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2001 that believes that every child, no matter their circumstances, has the inherent right to a loving good night, complete with the comforting bedtime ritual of changing into new, clean pajamas and enjoying an enchanting story. Pajama Program offers at-risk children the unconditional, magical gifts of pajamas and books so that they can enjoy the greatest benefit of a loving bedtime and peaceful good night: a fulfilling good day.
