We Need Volunteers to Run for Eve's Fund!
Navajo children in the southwestern United States face enormous obstacles in their lives, including poverty, domestic violence and abuse. Preventable injuries in this region are three times the national average.
Eve’s Fund is trying to raise $8,000 by December 1, 2011 to buy bike helmets for 1,000 Navajo kids. Many of these children share bikes or borrow them from recreational programs, but helmets are in short supply.
An $8 donation (the price of a good helmet) could prevent a brain or spinal cord injury...or even save a life!
If you are planning to run or walk in any kind of race in the next two months, please consider raising money for Eve’s Fund at the same time.
Whether you’re signed up for a short fun run with your children...a 5K...10K or even a longer race, you can celebrate your accomplishment and give the race an added purpose by telling your friends and asking them to make a tax-deductible contribution to our Running for Eve's Fund Challenge.
To donate to our cause, just click the big orange DONATE button on this page. (Remember, just $8 will buy a helmet!)
To help even more, click the JOIN THE TEAM button to get your own page. You can then invite your friends and family to donate.
Warm thanks from Eve's mom,
Barbara Crowell Roy
PS. I got off the couch this past summer and ran three 5Ks—my first ever—for Eve’s Fund. If I can do it anyone can.
