BENEFITING: Touch Foundation
ORGANIZER: Touch Foundation
EVENT DATE: Nov 03, 2013
What better reason to run the 2013 New York City Marathon than with the Touch Foundation in support of a great cause. Touch Foundation was founded in 2004 to improve the health of the Tanzanian population by increasing access to essential, quality healthcare for those who need it most.
Since its founding, Touch has helped graduate 209 physicians—roughly 10% of Tanzania’s physician workforce—and over 1,500 allied health care professionals such as nurses, radiologists and lab technicians. Over their careers, they will care for thousands of people and save many precious lives.
My goal is to raise $3,000 for the Touch Foundation and cross the finish line after 26.2 miles on Sunday, November 3rd. I am excited to run for—and shed light on—such a worthy organization and would greatly appreciate your contribution and support. With your help, Touch Foundation will continue to touch and save many lives in sub-Saharan Africa. Thank you so much!
