THE STORY:

Hello All,

I will be running in the NYC Marathon for the first time this year, and I am very excited. I felt that if I am running I might as well run for a charity as well. You might have seen the devastating crisis in Syria and the thousands of men, women and children that have died in this civil war. I felt at a loss as to how I can personally make a dent in alleviating the suffering of these people. So I decided to run for Doctors without Borders, they are making a huge difference by providing medical care to tens of thousands of refugees that have streamed in to neighboring Lebanon, Jordan, and Iraq.

In the spirit of entrepreneurship as coined by Jim Collins (http://www.jimcollins.com/index.html) in his bestselling book “Good To Great” I have a Big Hairy Audacious Goal (BHAG) of raising $5,240 in the next few weeks for Doctors Without Borders.

Join me in giving this BHAG as great big hug!  Donate to Doctor’s Without Boarders through my fundraising page on Crowdrise.

Thank You – Michael  

About Doctors Without Borders

Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an international independent medical humanitarian organization that delivers emergency aid to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, natural and man-made disasters, and exclusion from health care in more than 65 countries. A private, non-profit organization, Doctors Without Borders was founded in 1971 as the first non-governmental organization to both provide emergency medical assistance and bear witness publicly to the plight of people it assists.

Response to Crisis in Syria

As the crisis in Syria intensifies daily, with thousands continuing to flee to neighboring countries to search for safety, humanitarian needs inside and outside the country are escalating rapidly. The situation is desperate, thousands have been killed and wounded, and medical assistance in Syria is not only limited but has itself become a target of the regime. Since the crisis began in March 2011, the ability for international organizations, including Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), to provide aid inside Syria has been severely restricted. MSF has therefore strengthened its response to the refugees who are flowing across the Syrian borders into countries such as Lebanon, Jordan, and Iraq.
