THE STORY:

Hi everyone! My name is Katherine and this September 18, I’m participating in the Rock ‘n’ Roll Philadelphia Half Marathon. But I’m not running alone. I will be running on behalf of Healing the Children® New Jersey. They are a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Their vision is to create a world where children, who don’t have access to medical care, receive the quality medical care they deserve and desperately need.. Since 1981, HTCNJ has provided care to 33,000 children, helping nearly 1,000 children each year. Based out of Hawthorne, NJ – HTCNJ is a highly efficient, allocating over 90% of the all funds raised directly for programs and services. HTCNJ is led by an all volunteer Board of Trustees along with a small staff of administrators who's mission is “to provide access to medical care and related services for children in need in New Jersey and worldwide.” Your donations will go towards medical procedures, providing medication, equipment, care, therapy, eyeglasses, hearing aids, orthotics and numerous necessities. These children will live temporarily with host families children in NJ (so they may receive medical treatment not available to them in their native countries.) Donations also fund International Aid, by sending over-the-counter health products, medical supplies and medications to developing countries so they may be distributed to children in need. As well as donating surgical equipment to international medical groups/hospitals. Please support me in my cause to make this world a better place for children who desperately need our help. It’s easy to donate one dollar a mile than it is to run it! click on the link below to donate. Any amount of money is greatly appreciated, nothing is too small. I’m running for these children who can’t so they can have better medical care, and a healthier future. If you would like to purchase a t-shirt, 100% of the proceeds are being donated to HTCNJ as well. Thank you very very much. :) Much love and gratitude, Katherine “You can’t help everyone, but everyone can help someone.” - Dr. Loretta Scott
