BENEFITING: Save the Children
ORGANIZER: Save the Children
EVENT: Honolulu Marathon 2016
EVENT DATE: Dec 11, 2016
If you know me, you know that my two children are my whole world. My daughter Malia is 8, and my son Clydee is 15 months old. Everyday I am thankful to have healthy kids that are always protected and provided for.
I had been donating to Save the Children since Typhoon Haiyan hit The Philippines back in November 2013. They provided emergency relief when the typhoon first hit, and now they are in the recovery stage of supporting and rebuilding homes of over 1 million people. 826,000 of them are children.
"Save the Children invests in childhood –
every day, in times of crisis and for our future.
In the United States and around the world,
we give children a healthy start, the opportunity
to learn and protection from harm."
This is why Save the Children is such an important charity to me, and it is my honor to be part of their team of heroes at this year's Honolulu Marathon.
Children hold such a special place in my heart. It is so important that they have a voice, and their voices be heard.
Your contribution is greatly appreciated, and no dollar amount is too small. With your donation, your name will not only be in my heart, but also written on my body as I run the marathon in December =)
