BENEFITING: MISSION SANTA MARIA INC
EVENT DATE: Jun 29, 2014
I am running the 5 mile Achilles Hope & Possibility race on June 29th for a great cause: Mission Santa Maria. Please consider supporting my run in one of the following ways...
1) Consider a donation to Mission Santa Maria - Our goal is to raise $8,000 for Mission Santa Maria as part of this race. Mission Santa Maria is a charity I am very involved in that helps children in Ecuador receive education, food, health care and shelter. Many of these children come from abusive families and extreme poverty. I have had the privilege of spending time with these kids and the work of the Mission is vital. It is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and donations are 100% tax deductible. ALL of your donations go toward helping kids directly - the operating/admin costs of the charity are covered by board members of the charity.
You can learn more about the charity (started by my good friend Jim Campbell) and the direct impact your contribution has on children's lives on the Mission website here. You can donate directly on the Mission site, or here on Crowdrise.
2) Join our Team for the race! - The race is an awesome event I've done multiple times with Achilles, which is an organiztion for physically challenged athletes like moi, enjoying a 5 mile run/walk through Central Park with 3,000 compadres on a Sunday morning. The link to register is on the left side of this page. Just let me know if you register, then you can get one of these cool Crowdrise pages for yourself.
