BENEFITING: FRIENDS OF JOHN PAUL SCHOOL
Hi! This is Sam Comerford, and last year, I did a fundraiser “Make a Run for Uganda” to bring solar lights to the kids at John Paul Secondary School. It was a huge success, thanks to all my donors! Last summer, I actually got to go to Uganda, and there I was able talk to the kids personally about what they need. This year, they would really like to have backpacks, because so many of them walk long distances to get to JPS. I have decided to make this my Eagle scout project, and will be making backpacks for the students. Each backpack will only cost $5 to make, and will serve the students very well. So, my goal for this year is to have a “Race for a Case” in order to raise the money for the supplies to make the backpacks.
And this time, I’m not running a 10K. I’m running a half-marathon, which is more than double the distance of the 10K! The race is on 4/30/16, and is in Novi, Michigan. It is called the Novi 3rd Annual Half Marathon and you can check out their site Here. My goal is to raise $1,000 which is enough to make 200 packs.
Thank you so much for your past and continuing support! Please click my video link for more information on this project.
