EVENT DATE: Nov 04, 2012
As many of you may know, my mother underwent six months of dialysis last year and received a kidney transplant right before Christmas 2011. She has been thriving ever since, and we all appreciate the second chance she received from her donation. To celebrate the first anniversary, I am running the New York City Marathon for the local chapter of the National Kidney Foundation. My goal is to raise $5,000 and encourage at least 26 people, one for every mile, to become organ donors. In addition, I'd love to see you on the streets of my hometown cheering on race day!
The National Kidney Foundation, a major voluntary nonprofit health organization, is dedicated to preventing kidney and urinary tract diseases, improving the health and well-being of individuals and families affected by kidney disease and increasing the availability of all organs for transplantation.
Thank you for your support, and love your kidneys!!
