On November 5th I will be running the New York Marathon with the Herren Project. I am excited to represent this awesome group once again after an unbelievable experience with this team at the Boston Marathon. The mission of The Herren Project is to provide assistance in taking the first steps toward recovery and a life of sobriety, educational programs and resources to increase awareness on the signs of addiction and bring hope for a better tomorrow. For me, this has a personal connection, and I was thrilled to be given the chance to continue to run for and raise money for this organization.
That being said, I’ve asked many of you to donate already this year (and most of you have! Amazing!), and I know there are many other organizations that are looking for support. So, I’d ask you, if you are willing, to share this message to your networks and help me raise the remaining $2000.00 of my $4,000.00 goal.
I’m going to make this fun though (I hope), I reached out to a number of organizations in the Boston area and asked if they’d be willing to help me create a little game to make things interesting. I have 60 envelopes; each one is a dollar amount between $1 up to $60. From now until they are gone, if you make a donation in this range you will receive the corresponding envelope and a chance to win a gift certificate to go to a paint night, go rock climbing with a friend for an afternoon, play mini-golf at Kimball’s farm with a friend, get a facial in West Acton, attend a performance at the Huntington Theater, spend an afternoon at the ICA . . . now recognizing that these ‘prizes’ are best for those in the Boston/ Metro-west areas, if you are not from this area and win a prize, I’ll send you a mystery box which will be an eclectic mix of who knows what. Trust me, I am a fantastic package sender.
So, to recap, make a donation: https://www.crowdrise.com/the-herren-project-nyc-2017/fundraiser/megandenault
