BENEFITING: World Wildlife Fund
EVENT DATE: Mar 20, 2011
HOURS PLEDGED: 100
I am running in the Annual New York City Half Marathon on Sunday, March 20, 2011. I have also been inspired to run for a good cause and have chosen the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). Your donation will go towards the worldly mission of WWF which I will share with you below:
As the world's leading conservation organization in 100 countries, WWF uses the power of science to preserve the diversity and abundance of life on Earth.
That means simple things like clean water, clean air, things you don't need a reservation for and things that don't send you a bill.
More scientifically, the preservation of natural areas and wild populations of plants and animals, including endangered species; sustainable approaches to the use of renewable natural resources; and promoting more efficient use of energy and maximum reduction of pollution.
By 2020, WWF will conserve 19 of the world's most important natural places and significantly change global markets to protect the future of nature.
I am very excited to be a part of these efforts and your donation will contribute to the preservation and protection of our beautiful planet and its inhabitants (including us) !!
