THE STORY:

Dearest Friends,

It’s hard to believe that it’s been more than a decade since I’ve run a marathon and even harder to believe that I am just about to begin training for another one! I am excited to officially commit to running on November 2 in the New York City marathon as a member of the Best Buddies team.  I’m not physically or mentally there yet, but I’ve got a plan and a group of the best running partners anyone could ask for to help me get there over the next 16 weeks.  As for my fundraising, I need a little help from you. 

BEST BUDDIES is a nonprofit organization dedicated to establishing a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). This is our second year as an official Community Charity Partner with the New York Road Runners for the NYC Marathon. Last year Team Best Buddies raised over $25,000 and this year our goal is to raise $35,000. 

I first learned of Best Buddies from my friend, running buddy, and coach for this training season, Eileen.  It’s clear the tremendous impact that this program has had on her family.  When I hear her talk about the relationships her three daughters have with their buddies, I’m certain the same goes for them and for their families as well.  My goal is to raise $3,500 by October 25 for this amazing program.  I would greatly appreciate any donation you could make; no amount is too small.  Thank you so much!

All my best,

Zeynep
