Hey everyone! I am really excited to be running the 2017 NYC Marathon, and I will be doing it with a really great charity, + Pool. I have wanted to run the NYC Marathon nearly as long as I have been following + Pool's journey - since college if you were wondering. :)
Most people that know me know how much I love Virginia Tech and the surrounding community (it is my home after all); and any chance I get to support alumni, especially alumni of the architecture school, I will do it.
Through the NYC Marathon/ + Pool partnership I am tasked to raise $3,000 and would appreciate your support in helping me reach my goal! If you cannot contribute monetarily, words of encouragement are also greatly appreciated!
+ Pool represents an endeavor to build a floating pool in the Hudson river, filtering the dirty Hudson water to create clean water for folks to swim in. The filtration system they are developing has significance beyond a pool in the Hudson river, and I am excited to witness the technology's global impact. I encourage everyone to visit their webpage and see all the cool things they are working on! www.pluspool.org
Running not your thing but you love a good bloody on Race Day? Email us to join the + POOL cheering section along the race route and help us advocate for clean water! firstname.lastname@example.org
