EVENT DATE: Oct 13, 2012
I am excited to run in the 2012 ING Hartford Marathon with Team Connecticut Childrens. This race supports Connecticut Children’s Medical Center in their mission to improve the physical and emotional health of children through family-centered care, research, education, and advocacy. With each donation, I will be helping to give the children and families of our region the care they deserve. I have set my minimum goal at $500 and hope to exceed this amount in raising money to run the 5K on October 13, 2012. Although October 13th may seem far away, it is fast approaching, and with my hopes to exceed my goal I am starting to raise money early on.
When I was 10 years old I started a non-profit organization dedicated to improving our world, specifically cleaning up our polluted oceans. The organization, 2 Girls Wake Up The World, raised approximately $5,000. Today, I am once again devoted in making our world a better place. I realized that it is not only important to help our world, but it is also crucial to help the people living in our world. The Children's Medical Center affords children with the very best medical care and helps to provide them with a swift recovery.
Please help Connecticut Children's be the largest official charity of the ING Hartford Marathon again this year. It is quick and easy to make a donation to this wonderful charity. Simply click the donate button to make an online donation.
On behalf of myself and my organization, 2 Girls Wake Up The World, thank you for your support.
