I am running a half marathon to raise money for the victims of Super Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) in the Philippines -- the country I am from originally. Although my family is not from the area affected by the storm, as a Filipino I feel obligated to help my countrymen. As a mom of 2 young boys, it was heartbreaking to see all the children suffering. Thanksgiving is coming and I am grateful and thankful for all the blessings that I have. I am reaching out to you to help me raise money to help those in need. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
