ORGANIZER: HavenHouse St. Louis
EVENT: 2013 GO! For A Cause
EVENT DATE: Apr 07, 2013
Many of you know that I am on the Young Professional's Board for HavenHouse. This year HavenHouse was selected to be one of the charities supported by the Go! St. Louis Marathon. This is a great opportunity but it meant that they needed volunteers to run and actually participate to raise them money. I initially said NO WAY as I REALLY REALLY hate to run. So, volunteering to run the half marathon (which is more than 13 miles!) was/is a very big deal for me. It turns out that the race is just a few weeks before my 30th birthday. So, I decided that if I'm ever going to do something like this it would be a nice thing to complete before that milestone and a great way to give back to HavenHouse. Now there is no backing out. As I am not doing this for fun I am turning to my friends and family for support. Please help me make this all worthwhile by donating to the cause and helping me reach my goal. Any support will be very much appreciated, think of it as an early birthday present. Also, if you are in St. Louis and want to come cheer me on that would be great too or maybe pick me up off the ground and carry me part of the way :). Now if you are wondering what HavenHouse is see below for more details and watch the video posted.
