BENEFITING: TUESDAYS CHILDREN
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2011
I'm venturing out to tackle my very first marathon all the while supporting a great charity - Tuesday's Children!
Tuesday's Children is a non-profit family service organization that has made a long term commitment to every individual impacted by the events of September 11, 2001 and more recently those who have been impacted by terrorist incidents worldwide. Learn more about this charity here: http://www.tuesdayschildren.org/
I will be running the New York City 2011 Marathon with two other girl friends and we plan on rocking the race for this great cause! I would love any support family and friends can provide. My goal is to raise $2,500 by the race day, November 6th (I must reach at least half my goal by October 6th). An exciting perk to my fundraising goal is the company I work for, Gartner, supports a charity match program in which they will match dollar-for-dollar what I raise up to $5,000!!!
I am thrilled to be starting out on this marathon adventure for a great cause with the support of all of you - thank you in advance for any amount - it all makes such a difference and a great impact on the lives of so many individuals who deserve it!
P.S. Any questions please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org :)
