EVENT: Pittsburgh Marathon 2016
EVENT DATE: May 01, 2016
Dear Friends and Family,
I am going to be running in the Pittsburgh Marathons Toddler Trot with the intention of raising money for Paytens Village's programming to support Child Abuse Prevention. As many of you know, This organization was named after me, and it represents the hope for the future. The Founder created this organization to be the voice of children to fight to end child abuse prevention in the city of Pittsburgh and surrounding areas. As you know a little girl in the city of Pittsburgh who was so close to my age died last year allegedly at the hands of her own mother. I am running to honor her memory! I want to ensure that all children and their families have the necessary support to prevent all cases of child abuse from occurring.Further down this page, I have listed the dollar amount that I am hoping to raise for this race. If I can hit my goal I will be an instrumental part of helping PAYTEN's Village grow the programming that EVERY Family could benefit from.
This fundraiser is very important to me because I dont every want to see another family have to bury their child at such a young age, when there is a program as awesome as PAYTEN's Village exist. By running this race, I am hoping to raise enough money, and to also keep all of us connected to this very important cause.
The only way to ensure that the programs of Paytens Village continue is for us to hit our goal by April 15, 2016. I will be running in this race, and I will keep in touch with each of you throughout this process to remind you about our individual fundraising deadlines.
I want to personally thank each of you for your support and let you know that PAYTEN's Village really appreciatedyour support. We will be using Crowdrise.com as our online host for this fundraiser because they will allow us to keep 100 percent of the donations and avoid credit card fees!
P.S. – If I can raise just $58 per week, I will hit my goal in time!
