Christy Evans' Fundraiser:

Team NYAWC NYC Marathon 2012

THE STORY:

Have you ever come up with what seemed like a really great idea when hanging out with your friends?  Maybe something on your bucket list that never seemed possible then someone said, "I have a way for you to cross running a major marathon off your bucket list...without qualifying".  Would you take that offer?  Well, I did and on November 4, 2012, I will run in my first (and last) full marathon - the New York City Marathon and I hope you will support my fundraising efforts.

I have been training since April and am on my 3rd pair of running shoes because I have worn the tread down that much and not just because Asics has released newer cuter shoes in earth tone colors.  Based on my practice runs, I can safely say that I will finish somewhere between the 2012 women's Olympic Gold medalist Tiki Galena's time of 2:23:07 and Shizo Kanakuri who took 54 years, 8 months, 6 days and 8:32:20.3 seconds to complete the 1912 Olympic marathon in Helsinki. Apparently, he stopped during the race and was too embarrassed to tell anyone so he just left Finland and was listed as missing for over 50 years.  Somehow, I think that if I don’t show back up at work on Tuesday after the marathon someone might come looking for me so rest assured, I will finish the race on actual race day.  Promise!

Even more important than finishing the marathon is the exceptionally worthwhile non-profit which my fundraising efforts support - the New York Asian Women's Center (NYAWC).  NYAWC helps women and their kids recover from domestic violence and human trafficking, provides shelter and teaches practical skills to help these ladies get back on their feet. 

While I am slightly later than I had planned in asking for your support to reach my $3,000 goal, I look at it as a focused effort much like those two week NPR fundraising drives -  without the request for contributions every 30 minutes. 

So please, I ask you kindly to donate to this amazing organization.  Do it now – it only takes a few minutes and I thank you from the bottom of my heart and the soles of my well-worn running shoes.
