I recently accepted the challenge of running in the ING NYC Marathon to benefit the National Kidney Foundation. This will be my 6th marathon and certainly not my last. 26 Million people have chronic kidney disease and another 20 million are at risk. The ING NYC Marathon - 'Team Kidney' is a fun, inspiring, community fundraiser which calls attention to the prevention of kidney disease and the need for organ donation. It’s also an opportunity for me to support the 26 million Americans with chronic kidney disease. I am trying to help people understand the need for early detection of kidney disease. In addition to raising funds for research and help for patients and their families, the ING NYC Marathon is a great way to bring the community together!
I have a fundraising goal of $6,500 and I am asking you to help by supporting my fundraising efforts with a donation. Your tax-deductible gift will make a difference in the lives of many! It is faster and easier than ever to support this great cause - you can make your donation online through this site easily. Any amount, great or small, helps in the fight. I greatly appreciate your support and will keep you posted on my progress.
