EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2011
My wish for my birthday on October 6th is for each of my friends to donate $10 or more to assist an inner city charter school in Overtown, Miami. This wish is in honor of my friend, Edith Georgi, whi is running in the NY marathon. Every step she takes will directly benefit The Gibson Charter School, which is a haven for kids in need. Please help the children, support Edith's cause, and make my wish come true!
See below for details. :)

I'm running the New York Marathon on November 6, and running for a great cause!
Every step I take in the marathon is dedicated to raising money to assist an inner city charter school in Overtown, Miami. I am the chair of the Board of Directors for the school. The school is only 2 years old and soaring from its failing status of a year ago. Unfortunately, the budget has been slashed for all public schools, including charters. This school is a haven for kids in need--a place where they gain hope and respect for themselves and others. All money will go to the school to fund everything from aftercare to motivational projects. Many of these students come from impoverished backgrounds; this is the first place wehre they are treated with the respect they deserve. Please help me strengthen this school! Your contributions will give me the motivation I need to get through the last hard months of training. Check out the website:http://www.gibsoncharterschool.com/wp
Many thanks! Muchas Gracias!
