NYC Half This Sunday!
March 15, 2017
BENEFITING: International Rescue Committee
ORGANIZER: International Rescue Committee
EVENT DATE: Mar 19, 2017
A few weeks from now I'll be traipsing my way through the streets of NYC trying to make it though the NYC Half 2017 while only slightly questioning my life choices. It would bring me great joy to know that my efforts helped serve some greater cause.
The International Rescue Committee is a fantastic organization that counts Albert Einstein as one of its Founders. It helps bring relief and medical aide to victims of civil strife all around the world but also resettles refugees and asylum seekers here in the U.S.A, including my backyard NYC. Considering how our current President is behaving and the negative impression his actions convey to the world, I believe it's as important as ever for those of us who believe in human rights to support organizations like the IRC. Will you help me?
If you can spare $10, $20, or maybe a little more, know that this money will bring life altering aide to help Syrian refugees---and other asylum seekers--who are no longer in a position to help themselves. A small gesture from you can make a huge impact for these people in need. Also, you can contribute while catching up on Rupaul's Drag Race..it's my dumb ass that will be running 13 miles :)
Thank you, Thank you, Thank You in Advance!!
