BENEFITING: Save the Children

EVENT DATE: Oct 10, 2010

Robert Blake


On 10/10/10 I will be running the Chicago Marathon. I am able to do this in large part because I was a lucky child; born in America where the likelihood of succeeding and having the free time and resources to train for a marathon is possible.

Unfortunately, in America and throughout the world there are millions of unlucky children who are born into poverty so great, hopelessness so abundant, and situations so destitute that it's hard for me to imagine. How do these kids even survive?

The children born into these situations around the world are just as capable as any child born in the richest parts of America or Europe. They need to be given the chance to make a better life for themselves and the Save the Children Foundation, and your donations, help give children around the world that chance. If you're going to change the world, you have to start with the children.

The Save the Children Foundation is a top ranked charity who has programs around the world dedicated to making the lives of children better.

Please help me raise money for this organization. I'm going to shoot for fundraising goal of $3,275. That means if I send this to 250 people I know and you each agree to sponsor me at a rate of 50 cents per mile ($13), I'll hit this goal, and YOU will have done something to change the life of a child.
