"Whether you believe you can or believe you can't, you're probably right." Henry Ford
Well….I believe I can…for me the “can” is finishing in under 4 hours….wish me luck and, on behalf of AmeriCares, thank you for your support.
Every day, in impoverished countries all over the world, people suffer and die from treatable illnesses. Two billion people are at risk right now, because they lack access to basic medicines. Together we can change that.
Team AmeriCares is running our first ING New York City Marathon with a goal to raise $25,000 for deliveries of lifesaving medical and disaster aid to help people in crisis.
Historically, for every $1 donated, we are able to deliver $25 in aid. This means that if we reach our fundraising goal, we can deliver up to $625,000 worth of humanitarian relief!
You can help
Let’s get more planes flying and trucks rolling to help people in countries like Haiti, Somalia, Malawi, Guatemala, and here in America.

When disaster, poverty, or conflict causes human suffering, AmeriCares arrives on the scene with deliveries of crucial medicines and humanitarian aid. Since 1982, we’ve sent $10 billion in aid to 164 countries, including the U.S.
