BENEFITING: HOPE FOR BEREAVED INC
EVENT DATE: Oct 20, 2013
I started out wanting to run my first marathon and raise some money for a great cause. Now I plan to run 70 miles (including my first 1/2 and full marathon)…and raise A LOT of money for a great cause! HOPE for Bereaved. (www.hopeforbereaved.com)
HOPE For Bereaved, Inc. is dedicated to helping grieving children, teens and adults by providing services, support and counseling to all for no charge. HOPE offers support, understanding, coping strategies, friendship and hope to the bereaved, as well as education, consultation and resources for their families, friends, employers, school/daycare staff, co-workers and invested professionals.
HOPE is a great organization that helps countless people and families every day. I’d like to ask for your help to support a GREAT cause.
I’ll run the 70 miles (not all at once) and you provide HOPE with the support by donating whatever you can to this page. Any amount will help, $5, $10, whatever you can. My goal is to raise $2,000 by running 7 races.
