BENEFITING: The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp
EVENT: Team HITW NYC Marathon 2014
EVENT DATE: Nov 02, 2014
Hello! My name is Sarah Brenner, I am currently 18 years old, and I've been extremely passionate about running for about 5 years now. Having completed five half-marathons and countless 5ks and 10ks, I've been eager to move up to completing my first marathon!
I'm excited to announce that I will be running the 2014 TCS New York City Marathon for The Hole in the Wall Gang, a charity based in the Northeast which sends seriously ill children to camp at no cost to their families. This is a truly wonderful organization, providing children who suffer from draining and difficult illnesses with an opportunity to live care-free, even if only for a short time, as all children should.
Here is a bit more information about the organization I will be running for, taken from their website (http://www.holeinthewallgang.org):
The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp is dedicated to providing “a different kind of healing” to seriously ill children and their families throughout the Northeast, free of charge. It’s a community that celebrates the fun, friendship and spirit of childhood where every kid can “raise a little hell.”
To ensure that every child with a serious medical condition has the chance to experience the world of possibilities that camp has to offer. Through the generosity of others, The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp community provides this unique healing experience to kids in need and their families, including those who may not be able to come to Camp.
The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp was founded in 1988 by Paul Newman with one simple premise in mind, that every child, no matter their illness, could experience the transformational spirit and friendships that go hand in hand with camp.
I would like to offer a sincere thank you to anyone who can help me on this journey and donate to a wonderful cause!
