Want to support recovery efforts for those affected by Hurricane Sandy? Run for good with Ambassador Michele of NYC Running Mama on December 8th:
After watching my Facebook page fill with status updates and photos of my fellow Staten Islanders as well as friends in NYC helping those affected by Hurricane Sandy last week, I knew that I needed to find a way to help. Logistically, it’s difficult for me to physically help– having an (almost) 2 year old and 7 week old (who doesn’t take the bottle yet) force me to stay home most of the time.
I had the idea of starting a virtual race where runners could donate money (minimum of $20) to support those affected by the storm. In order to have an incentive to donate and run, I contacted a bunch of running companies and asked for donations. The response was overwhelming. There are 40 prizes that can be won– worth over $3,000 (and more are coming in).
All information about the race, including the link to sign up and donate can be found here.
