TEN FOR TEN
I run a 10k. You donate 10 bucks to an awesome cause!
Hi there! My name is Jennie Small. In less than a week, I will participate in the Hershey Half Marathon. For this race, I am a member of a 2-person relay team. I will run the last 6.1 miles of the race, which is just shy of a 10K.
So why am I running and raising money? For the past three years, my husband and I have traveled to Guatemala to partner wtih a non-profit organization called Champions in Action. This year, the organzation plans to launch a national soccer league that will target disadvantaged youth in cities throughout Guatemala. What this means is that youth, regardless of socio-economic status, will have the chance to participate in organized sports! Furthermore, through the formation of a national soccer league, many disadvantaged youth will be connected to life-changing mentors.
In order to launch this league, Champions in Action needs to raise quite a bit of money, and I’m hoping to help by raising at least $200! Before I run my 10k, would you consider donating 10 bucks to this awesome cause? All donations can be made right here on Crowdrise. Thank you in advance for your support.
