On November 1, 2014, I will run the Jazz Half Marathon. Presumably, this means I'll be carbo-loading on mini-Snickers and stale candy corn.
100% of the race proceeds benefit the Cancer Center at Children's Hospital in New Orleans. The average chemotherapy treatment costs $3,000 EACH and many families struggle to pay for this life-saving care. Please join me by helping to raise $250 towards this great cause. Whatever you care to give - no matter the amount - is greatly appreciated.
If you are the type who prefers to hitch your charitable buggy to objective criteria, you might consider pledging a small amount for every mile I put in. I have run 225 miles as of October 27, 2014 training specifically for the race. By the time I finish training plus the 13.1 mile race, I will have run a total of about 250 miles. So, for example, if you pledge 2 cents per mile, that would be $5.00. 5 cents per mile would be $12.50, and so on.
Thanks very much for your support!
