On November 3rd, 2013, I'm running in the ING New York City Marathon. I've decided to use this event and help the wonderful children and staff at Pattison's Academy in Charleston, SC.
I started this fundraiser on Crowdrise to raise $5000. I hope we raise much more than that! Every penny of this goes to help the costs of running Pattison's. This is a Charleston County charter school for children with disabilities. As a charter school within the county system, they receive funds to operate just as any other school, and on their own terms for the most part. Problem is, it takes so much more to have the facilities and resources needed for children with special needs. Charlie, my son, does not attend Pattison's but has had therapist based from there who are wonderful and has also attended their amazing Summer camp each year. It is unbelievable to see how dedicated these people are and how children involved in the school in any capacity are affected in so many positive ways!
I'm asking everyone I know to donate any amount they can. Would you please join with me and help raise as much as possible to support this wonderful school?
My goal is to raise $5000 but the sky is the limit!
Thank you so much for being a part of my life and helping me accomplish something that's very, very important to me.
