THE STORY:

Hi Family, Friends and Fabulous Strangers!

Welcome to my page for this year's 2017 SHAPE Women’s Half Marathon. When the opportunity to join CARE's fundraising team presented itself to me, I could not pass it up. Afterall, it couples two of my greatest passions: helping women and girls, and long distance running. 

For the past year, my company, Porter Novelli, has been teaming up with CARE to develop a global cause partnership. Through that partnership I will be spreading the word about CARE and it's mission, while fundraising and training for the SHAPE Women's Half Marathon this April in New York City.

Before I give you a quick update on why CARE is so impactful for women and girls across the World, I'd also like to remind you that every dollar counts and no amount is too small. Dig deep and many thanks for your generous hearts! I won't let you down.

Why should you CARE? (...see what I did there?)

CARE is a global leader within a worldwide movement dedicated to ending poverty. We are known everywhere for our unshakeable commitment to the dignity of people.

They put women and girls in the center because they know that our World cannot overcome poverty until all people have equal rights and opportunities. #WORD 

In the world’s poorest communities, girls and women bear the brunt of poverty, but they're also the KEY to overcoming it...CARE’s nearly seven decades of experience makes clear that when you empower a girl or a woman, she becomes a catalyst for positive change whose success benefits everyone around her. 

But for all of my gentleman friends out there... CARE hasn't forgotten about you. They are also dedicated to the education of men and boys, so that everyone understands the importance of global equality and the role that women and girls play in that harmony.

As a woman who was priviledged and blessed to have every opportunitity in this life, I feel that it's my duty to do what I can to ensure others have that same chance. And I hope you agree...

Thanks to each of you, I'm making good on my pledge to add to the grand total which means that we've raised enough money to fund a clean water system for a village in need. I could not be more grateful that you've all joined me in this journey. Up next? 13.1 miles on April 30th with some fabulous women in New York City! And between now and then, please feel free to continue showing the love for this incredible organization. Love - xx Maggie 3 years ago
