Will run for food!

EXCITING NEWS! On November 5, 2017, I will be running the NYC Marathon! YES! ALL 26.2 MILES!!!
I will be running with the charity Saving Mothers, who are dedicated to eradicating preventable maternal deaths and birth-related complications in the developing world.
They accomplish their mission in three ways:
1) Educating birth attendants and medical personnel in underserved communities
2) Pioneering low-cost, low-tech solutions such as "safe birth kits"
3) Coordinating pro bono surgical interventions in these countries manned by highly skilled medical professionals from the top hospitals in the U.S.
I would be forever grateful if you would support me in my goal to raise $5,000 for this remarkable charity. The key word is PREVENTABLE. These are preventable deaths, and every dontation helps to directly SAVE LIVES.
LET'S DO THIS!!!!
