EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2011
Running 26.2 Miles to Save Lives
Our Team Donations go to support four great causes - Polio Plus, Gift of Life, Ronald McDonald House NY, and the NY Rotary Foundation. Each cause receives a 25% share of our total.
Your donations will support Ronald McDonald House New York and its mission of providing support for pediatric cancer patients and their families
They will help Polio Plus which is working to make the final step in eradicating worldwide polio. In the last four countries of the world still affected by polio, Polio Plus is immunizing the children multiple times.
Each gift provides life saving heart surgery via Gift of Life for children from countries where heart surgery is not available. GOL is a Rotary based program.
The NY Rotary Foundation supports a diversity of local causes ranging from a soup kitchen in Harlem to providing manpower for a Thanksgiving veteran’s meal. It supports work in disaster relief through Fraternite Notre Dame whose outreach includes the earthquake in Haiti and hurricane Katrina in New Orleans. Smaller projects include high school essay contests, chess competitions, leadership training, and monthly scholarships.
Every amount makes a difference. Thank you on behalf of 1,200,000 Rotarians worldwide and every child whose life we save.
