Dear Friends and Family:
This year, I will run the New York City Marathon on November 6, 2011. I am extraordinarily excited for this opportunity! It has been a dream of mine to run a marathon and I consider myself very lucky to participate in one of the greatest road races in the world. Training began in late June and I am happy to report I am still smiling!
While I consider running a marathon a major accomplishment in its own right, I wanted to take full advantage of this opportunity and run for charity. Doctors without Borders is an independent humanitarian organization that provides medical assistance to people in dire situations, such as violence, catastrophe and neglect. Currently, Doctors without Borders serves and advocates for people in over 60 countries. If you donate to this cause, you will provide food, antibiotics, vaccinations, and other treatments to those who desperately need it.
My goal is to raise a minimum of $1000 for Doctors without Borders. If you would like more information about this nobel peace prize winning organization, please visit http://www.doctorswithoutborders.org/
Also, please visit my training blog if you would like to know how many miles I am running this week! http://www.countdowntonycmarthon.blogspot.com/
Thank you so much. Your donation will truly make a difference.
