BENEFITING: THE JOE TORRE SAFE AT HOME FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: THE JOE TORRE SAFE AT HOME FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Nov 03, 2013
Dear Friends and Family - Please make a donation to the Joe Torre Safe At Home® Foundation and join me in my commitment to complete the 2013 NYC Marathon in support of this great charity! As many of you know, I've been a board member for years. I have seen first hand how SAH's Margaret's Place safe rooms provide middle school and high school students experiencing domestic violence with self-confidence, perspective on their situations and respect for others. The challenge of training for and running in my first marathon pales in comparison to the struggles these young people face every day. Please join me in furthering SAH's goal of educating youth to end the cycle of domestic violence and save lives. My goal is to raise a total of $10,000, and a donation in any amount would mean so much. Thank you for your generosity! Jim.
