BENEFITING: World of Children Inc
ORGANIZER: World of Children Inc
EVENT: San Francisco Marathon 2014
EVENT DATE: Jul 27, 2014
I'm training for marathon numero dos, but this time, I'm doing it for a better reason than feeling super awesome about myself as I cross the finish line. This time I'm raising money for the nonprofit I work for, World of Children Award.
Last year alone, we funded some truly amazing programs that feed and shelter abandoned babies in Haiti; rescue girls from brothels in India; provide prosthetic limbs for disabled children in developing countries; advocate for the rights of disabled children in South Africa; and foster inclusive cheerleading teams in the U.S.
My goal is to raise $1,000 by race day on July 27. 100% of every donation directly supports and advances programs like the ones listed above -- nothing goes to administrative or overhead costs.
So even if you can't meet me at the start line at 5:30 am (I mean, gosh, why wouldn't you?), you can still say, "I support your crazy life decisions" with a donation.
