THE STORY:

Friends and Family -

SURPRISE!!! I am running the NY Marathon on Nov 6th for a great cause again!

PROJECT EDUCATION - Kenya

Many of you supported my Venice Marathon last year - I am calling on friends and family everywhere to rally again and help me raise $10,000 for Project Education - an incredible secondary school in Kenya. Details of the charity are below.

What is very exciting is that as a result of the worldwide support I received last year, Project Education is now also a registered charity in the UK.

The board and I would value ANY amount you are able to give. All expenses for my entry and participation in the NY marathon on Nov 6th have been covered. This means, ALL funds will be going DIRECTLY to the school minus only a small administration fee for online donations.

Why $10,000?

This marathon will mark 10 years since I ran my first marathon in 2001 (see the picture with my friend Jenny - that was 10 years ago). It will be a personal milestone for me (lots has happened in 10 years! - in 2005, I ran just after my second son was born, my first Francesco is pictured with my Dad there on the left).  Also, the cheeky side of me hopes that my personal and charitable goals will inspire people to give as much as they can to a small yet wonderful school that has inspired and revived a rural community in Kenya.

My promise - I will DEFINITELY finish the marathon. My hope - to do it in less than 4:10! (so,  more than an hour better than my time in 2001 and I am 10 years older!)


So, please read below to learn more about Project Education as well as visit their website: www.peikenya.org

Then, DONATE and SPREAD the word!!! - aside from standard on-line administration fees, every bit of your donation will go to the charity and make a VERY SIGNIFICANT impact.

Thank you in advance for your support and a special thanks to my husband Michel, my children Francesco and Matteo, and my parents for their love and patience throughout all my training!

Nicole

PS - Even though donations are US$ denominated, you can donate NO matter where you are in the WORLD using use your credit card!
