BENEFITING: REACHING U A FOUNDATION FOR URUGUAY
EVENT DATE: Nov 07, 2010
For each $ that you donate or raise for Reaching U, a boy or a girl, a teenager or a young mother living in poverty's life is touched. Opportunities open up for them, sometimes things they could not have imagined. With the generous support from persons like yourself, we support schools, after school programs, health centers and women's shelters.
Los PRIMITIVOS is a running team that proudly supports ReachingU and wants to help spread out their message and support their fundraising efforts to fund their projects. We also commit our time and this year we started training teenagers at Liceo Jubilar, one of the projects supported by RU. We intend to repeat this experience with other kids later on and also to appeal to other runners in our country, Uruguay. If you love running, or if you share our belief that there is much to be done to improve poor people's lives in Uruguay, help us in this cause.
Once again, we will run the NYC Marathon wearing our Reaching U Shirt. Our runners, Rossana Arechavaleta, Francisco Armas, Alberto Gossweiler, Juan Seré, Guillermo Sosa y Marcos Valdéz, contribute the enormous effort to run 26 miles, for which we have been training hard for months. Of you, we ask that you help us raise USD 1.000 for each of the 6 runners that will participate in this race.
Use the DONATE button to donate using your credit card. Each dollar goes directly to our organization (less th 5% that goes to our friends at crowdrise.com in order for this great idea to work).
Additionally, with this support we contribute to the NYCs Marathon's goal of raising $ 1MM for charity for each of the 26 miles (a total of 26 MM).
We invite you to share this with all your friends using the e-mail, Facebook and Twitter buttons. With a little push each, we can do a lot to change many person's lives.
