EVENT DATE: Nov 04, 2012
Dear colleagues, friends and family,
This November, I’m planning to pursue a personal dream. After several years of injuries, I thought my marathon career was over. The incredible coaching and training staff at Asphalt Green has helped me recover and I am training to complete my 15th NYC marathon on November 4th (my 65th overall)!
This year, I’m also raising money for PEP (Phys Ed Plus) – a New York based organization which is helping address the childhood obesity epidemic by bringing comprehensive Physical Education programs to public schools that do not have them. Over 90% of NYC public elementary schools do not meet the minimum Physical Education requirements for children. PEP recently obtained several race slots from the NYRRC.
While you can contribute any amount you wish, many people choose to donate per mile. For example, $1 per mile is $26.20, $2 per mile is $52.40 and $5 per mile is $131. Any amount you donate will be greatly appreciated. Please remember that your contribution is tax deductible and, if you work for a company which has a matching gift program, please take advantage of this opportunity to increase your donation. Please also forward this email to other potential donors or groups who may wish to contribute to this organization and cause.
Many thanks for your help and encouragement.

The mission of Phys Ed Plus is to stem the tide of the childhood obesity epidemic by getting kids active during the school day, providing schools with the comprehensive P.E. programs they are currently lacking, at low or no cost to them.
Thank you all for your support!
