EVENT: Missoula Marathon 2013
EVENT DATE: Jul 14, 2013
Well, somehow my sister Maureen talked me into running our first full marathon together. So, to make it a little more interesting, we have challenged each other to see who can raise more money for the Watson Children's Shelter. Now, Maureen being my next oldest sister, we have a bit of good ol' Irish sibling rivalry, and I want that lovely sister of mine to owe me some dinner! Anything you can donate to help the children and my personal competetition for a free meal are greatly appreciated!
From WCS: Watson Children's Shelter is dedicated to providing a safe, nurturing environment for children who have experienced abuse, neglect, abandonment or family crisis. Gather pledges and run the Missoula Marathon and Half Marathon for a good cause. Choose Watson Children’s Shelter as your charity and make every stride count for children in crisis. Together we can push through each mile, knowing that every step is helping a child in need. We welcome you to join our fundraising team!
Each year, more than 150 kids — infant to age 14 — are brought to Watson Children’s Shelter. We welcome children 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. From the moment a child steps through our doors they are surrounded with love. Our two shelters are designed to provide a safe, comfortable and welcoming stay for the children.
We encourage you to set your own fundraising goals as a member of our team. There is no goal too little or too large to help children in need. To learn more about Team Watson, visit http://www.watsonchildrensshelter.org/special-events/other-events/
