EVENT DATE: Jul 29, 2012
I'm running the San Francisco Marathon in July! Only a few years ago, I thought I would never do something like this because (1) a marathon is a very long distance to run and (2) I could just run it on my own. However, graduate school has taken a toll on my health, and it appears I need some external motivation.
As a runner in the marathon, I have the option of paying my entrance fee or raising a bunch of money for charity! Any money you donate here will go to the Halo Trust, which removes landmines from Cambodia. They estimate it costs $200 to remove each mine.
So, if you'd like to help support me getting healthy while also removing landmines from Cambodia, please donate!
