Congratulations to everyone reading this! You made it through 2020! Now lets help those enduring tragedy to have a prosperous 2021. The money is being donated to New Reach, which is a non-profit that has been working to " inspire independence for those affected by homelessness and poverty through housing and support using the most innovative and progressive methods" in New Haven County since 1990. Your donations will provide resources for sheltering families experiencing homelessness, help those struggling with mental health and substance abuse, and assisting their clients to evenutally be rehoused. They serve approximately 3000 people per year. Donations of any size are greatly appreciated. We can be the difference between a family sleeping on the cold concrete or in a bed surrounded by support.
When we reach the goal of $2620 I will run 26.2 miles (marathon).
I got the idea to run a marathon for the cause from my good friend Ahmed. Ahmed started his gofundme and pledged to run a marathon upon reaching the $2620 goal. Within two weeks he and his supporters raised the full goal, which was then donated to the local shelter in Portland, Maine. I was inspired by his actions, and felt like I could make a difference doing the same. Lets follow in Ahmeds footsteps and reach the goal. Thank you for your support! You are wonderful!
