BENEFITING: The Salvation Army

ORGANIZER: The Salvation Army

EVENT: 2012 Boston Marathon

EVENT DATE: Apr 16, 2012

Jenny Hanger

THE STORY:

As you may know, four years ago I was in an accident that injured my spine and temporarily paralyzed me. Over the course of the next few months I had to retrain my body to stand up without holding onto a support, to walk without stumbling, and to go up and downstairs without needing an escort. I wondered if I would ever move comfortably again.

As the months went by, my walking steadied and I started to run. At first it was to the end of the driveway but over the months my distance increased to a mile, then two. I had never run regularly before, but it became my way of celebrating my second chance.

On April 16, 2012, I will be running in the 116th Boston Marathon. Four years ago I never thought that I would run any marathon – much less the Boston Marathon – but I’ve been given an amazing opportunity to run this race for a charity that means so much to so many people.

I know that I would never have made it through what was such a trying time for me without the extensive support of my friends and family, and in contemplating charities associated with the Boston Marathon I can’t think of any that helps support so many people indiscriminately, in so many ways as much as The Salvation Army. As the following list of facts can attest, it really is “doing the most good!”

I am asking friends and family to consider sponsoring me for this event. I have two ambitious goals – the first is to complete the race as a celebration of all that I’ve overcome, and the second is to meet my personal goal of raising $5,000 for The Salvation Army. I would deeply appreciate your kind consideration of making a donation toward this goal. All donations are, of course, tax deductible. (The SA will mail all donors a receipt.)

For all those people out there who need a second chance, The Salvation Army is always there to lend a helping hand. I sincerely hope that you will join me as I help The Salvation Army change lives, one mile at a time. Thank you for your time and consideration of supporting my endeavor.

THANK YOU!!
