EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
Every time I heard about a race (any race) I thought, “oh that’s cool, I would probably never do one” but I proved myself wrong and I fell in love with running.
Running the NYC marathon is every runner's dream and I have tried a few years through the lottery with no luck! This year a good friend with a very kind heart, suggested that I join team UNICEF and he and his family will fully support my fundraiser. How could I say no!! Running the best race in the world to support such a noble organization, what an honor!
So here I am, ready to do what most people consider crazy, run 26.2 miles to support their cause.
Because it makes you feel good, because you have a little extra cash, because it will make a difference in someone's life and because you love me :) or at least like me a little!
UNICEF's main focus is to protect vulnerable children all around the world and they need our support to keep bringing hope to those children.
I will run those 26.2 miles with all my heart and I am pretty sure it will be a day I will never forget. Thanks in advance for all your support. Love Dani
U.S. Fund for UNICEF wrote -
UNICEF does whatever it takes to save and protect the world's most vulnerable children. Forty years ago, UNICEF figured out that promoting simple, low-cost interventions like hand washing and breastfeeding could save millions of lives. Undaunted by war or geography, UNICEF delivers.
Members of Team UNICEF NYC have committed to each raise a minimum of $3,500, in support of UNICEF's work worldwide.
