Hello friends

I am once again racing for the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), after completing the Marine Corps Marathon in 2011 for HRC. I have sucessfully raised over $3,000 for cancer research and HRC in my previous marathon endeavours.

I am participating in HRC's Athletes for Equality program this year by running in the Chicago Marathon in October 2014. I'm going to help raise money for HRC's incredible efforts – and I'd love to get your help. HRC's mission statement says it all and better than I could - "The Human Rights Campaign is America's largest civil rights organization working to achieve lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality. By inspiring and engaging all Americans, HRC strives to end discrimination against LGBT citizens and realize a nation that achieves fundamental fairness and equality for all."

Will you help me by making a donation of any amount to the Human Rights Campaign to support my run and the HRC which will help fund the continuing efforts of freedom and equality for all. Any amount you give now will go a long way for this important cause. If you chose not to donate, that's fine too. I just appreciate your taking the time to read this email, and understand who HRC is and what I am doing to contribute to the HRC civil rights initiatives.

Thanks in advance for your help – I'm looking forward to race day, and can't wait to tell you all about it once I've crossed the finish line.
