THE STORY:

Dear Friends and Family,

 

Last year I completed my first full marathon at the 2012 LA Marathon. It was a grueling 26.2 miles, but it was all worth it at the end. This year I am back for round two and will be running the LA Marathon again on March 17, 2013. Thanks to the generosity of many of you, I was able to raise over $2000 for charity last year. This year, I need your help to raise $2600!

 

Getting ready for a marathon a second time has required just as much time and energy as before. Our team started training in October 2012 and has been committed to early morning long runs every Saturday. We recently finished 18 miles and I am aiming to run 20 miles tomorrow- rain or shine. The pains are familiar and my toes will never look as pretty as before, but I’ve found great enjoyment in this experience. I’ve gotten to know my teammates better, including some co-workers, and received overwhelming support from all different people in my life.

 

Running a marathon is no small task, but the effort is tiny compared to the journey an individual must go through to get out of their addiction. I'm raising money for the Asian American Drug Abuse Program (AADAP). AADAP has been helping people struggling with substance abuse for over 40 years. It's a well respected and effective non-profit that has provided countless hours of service to the community. Your support will ensure that they can continue to deliver high-quality services to the people who need it most.

 

That's why I'm asking you to help me raise $2600- that’s $100 for every mile. If each of you committed to sponsoring every mile that I run, we can easily reach this goal. I know that times are tough, and anything you can do will help. Your donation is 100% tax-deductible and will go to charity work at AADAP. Here’s how you can help:

 

100 Awesome People x $1/mile = $26

 

50 Amazing Folks x $2/mile = $52

 

20 Incredible Donors x $5/mile = $130

 

1 Extraordinary Person (just to throw that out there)  x $100/mile = $2600

 

 

Here are the easiest ways to donate:

 

1)     ONLINE: Just click on the orange "DONATE" button.

(Note: you do not have to include the "Optional Charity Processing Fee" of 10%- you can change it manually by clicking on it)

 

2)     BY MAIL: Please send checks payable to "AADAP" (include "Paulina Hong" on memo line) to:

Hi Paulina, I just want to let you know that I really appreciate the internship opportunity you have introduced me to. I love the experiences so far, and I do learn a lot from this HIV/ drug outreach program! I hope that everything with the Marathon fundraising and training goes well! It's really awesome that you are taking up this challenge once again! Please keep me updated on how your Marathon turns out. Thank you very much for your help and care! God Bless! 5 years ago
