THE STORY:

Dear Friends,

I am really excited to tell you that I have entered the 2012 ING New York City Marathon and will be raising money for Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF).

Running the New York City Marathon for MSF feels very special to me, as I have worked with MSF for over 12 years, in different countries and capacities. I started working for MSF in China in 1995 and throughout my first year with the organization, worked in remote minority areas where people had no access to the most basic healthcare services, helped with a response to massive floods which affected millions, and assisted street children and North Korean refugees. From then on I was hooked. From China to the Palestinian Territories, from North Korea to Geneva, I witnessed firsthand the difference MSF makes in individual people's life when they need it most, and the incredible caliber of the medical response its teams are able to deploy in the most desperate situations. Even though I have now moved on to a different phase of my professional life, I remain as passionate about MSF's work and principles as I ever was, and I am glad I can continue to contribute to MSF’s efforts by fundraising at the occasion of the NYC marathon.

Doctors Without Borders / Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) delivers emergency medical assistance to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, malnutrition, natural disasters, or exclusion from health care in nearly 60 countries. In emergencies and their aftermath, MSF provides essential health care, rehabilitates and runs hospitals and clinics, performs surgery, responds to epidemics, carries out vaccination campaigns, operates feeding programs for malnourished children, and offers mental health care. When needed, MSF also constructs wells and dispenses clean drinking water, and provides shelter materials like blankets and plastic sheeting. MSF also provides treatment for people caught in the medical catastrophes of HIV/AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis, and advocates for appropriate and affordable quality treatments and diagnostics through its Campaign for Access to Essential Medicines. On any one day, close to 27,000 doctors, nurses, logisticians, water-and-sanitation experts, administrators, and other qualified professionals can be found providing medical care in international teams made up of local MSF aid workers and their colleagues from around the world.

I have set a goal to raise US$ 3,500 for Doctors Without Borders. I thank you in advance for helping me reach my goal with your contribution.

With warm regards,

Marine
