Friends & Family,
On Sunday, October 28, I am running for a second year in the Marine Corp Marathon 10K for The Children's Inn. As part of my participation, I have committed to raising at least $600, and I need your help. Any contribution will enable The Inn to provide a place where children can play, relax with their families, and experience a sense of normalcy while participating in groundbreaking pediatric medical research.
As you may know, on August 21, The Inn had to be evacuated and closed due to structural damage to the roof of the original portion of the building. All 45 families who were staying at The Inn at the time were relocated to area hotels. Although the families continue to receive the full support of The Inn, they continue to need the support of our community during this emergency. The Inn’s most urgent need is help with covering the cost of temporary housing and meals for their displaced families. Your contribution will help this need, as well as many other needs. Here are a few examples of how your tax-deductible contribution can support the kids and families at The Inn:
• $330 Pays for a family to stay one night at The Inn
• $100 Provides a “Thoughtful Treasure” (small gift) in the mailbox of every child staying at The Inn
• $50 Buys groceries for a family during a week-long visit
• $25 Purchases a week’s worth of calling cards for a family to stay in touch with family and friends back in their home states or countries
