THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR GENEROSITY AND SUPPORT - EVERYTHING IS ABOUT TO PAY OFF at the SAN FRANCISCO MARATHON this SUNDAY!
I'm 15 years old, and am currently in training for the San Francisco Marathon this summer. Preparing for and completing this event is already a big deal, but I felt that my journey wouldn't be complete without running for a bigger cause - something I can always be proud of.
I chose to raise money for Committed2Community because they're an organization that I can really see the effects of. Whereas many charities raise money for international causes that we may never see where our money actually goes (which is still a great thing), our own communities need our help. Committed2Community helps raise money for local causes, such as putting on events to help combat childhood obesity.
By donating to my page, you will not only be helping this great cause, but you'll also be supporting my journey to the San Francisco Marathon. Whether it be $10 or $100, I truly appreciate your support at reaching my goal of $1,100. Even better, if you could tell your friends about my event and cause (you can share this page on Facebook), it would help me even more.
And, a little more information about Committed2Community:
Committed2Community was created to support those essential local nonprofits that provide needed services for underserved areas.
In order to do this, our organization creates and manages participatory events and programs that will raise money for these non-profit organizations so that can continue to function and support our communities.
This year, funds raised for C2C will be used to support local child abuse prevention efforts, to support Organs 'R" Us, to help fund Bay Area groups and organizations that contribute volunteers to the event, and to support other community causes including: combating hate and prejudices, suicide prevention, childhood obesity prevention and meditation support.
Support our efforts to raise money for this outstanding organization and their efforts to empower the underserved communities of the San Francisco area.
