I have committed to raise $2,620 for Team for Kids and it’s time to get started! Fundraising has always been something I wanted to pursue, but scared of the possible negatives, like not being able to fully raise the funds. I am thrilled that I have been surrounded by encouraging people to help me decide to take the leap of faith to pursue a dream. Team for Kids is the perfect organization for me to get work with too! Knowing that I get to help better the lives of kids will keep me encouraged through my training. My first fundraising idea came from a good friend, Joe, that I met from instagram. Check out his blog here, he does a lot of good stuff! 🙂
Throughout my fundraising, I plan to have a few “Sponsor Miles of the NYC Marathon” challenges. Today begins the first challenge! For every $10 donated, a mile is sponsored. So, if you donate $20, you are sponsoring me for two miles of the 26.2 mile race. For every mile sponsored, your name is put in a drawing for a $25 gift card to the place of YOUR choice! The more miles you sponsor, the greater your chances of winning! The first challenge will “run” until I get all 26 miles sponsored. I am keeping track of all miles sponsored, so I hope to have miles with multiple sponsors at the conclusion of my fundraising. This will serve as extra encouragement while I am running through the boroughs of NYC in November! (PS: all donations to Team for Kids are tax deductible!)
