BENEFITING: American Red Cross
EVENT DATE: Jul 30, 2011
March 2010, I ran my first half marathon and raised $1000+ for the American Cancer Society. Running under a charity was not intitally a choice upon race registration. However, during the last mile of the race when I saw ACS members in the crowd, tears came to my eyes (no surprise, given my tendency to cry for everything) and I was more than glad that I did it.
Running for the American Cancer Society gave purpose beyond personal expectations and for that I reason I am choosing to raise money for the charity of my choice for this, my second half marathon in Queens, New York at the end of July.
This year's donation will be made to the American Red Cross as they help those in our nation that have been affected by national disasters.
Please help me help others (Trust me, it feels good!)
