TCS NYC Marathon bound!
Normally, I would not even consider doing charity on my own. I do feel like I have more support. Right now, as I feel that I can count on a larger number of donations, as I know more people.
Fundraising, or asking for funding for a cause is generally something that I love to do. I love to do that with my fan costuming group.
Here is my thought process, however wrong or right it is. I need to raise a certain amount of money. $2,000+. I need to motivate people to join me no matter how little and help, how much really doesn’t matter. Whatever motivates people works for me. I figured if I spoke to about 200 people (more or less) and convinced them to donate $10 or more, then my fundraising would be fruitful. This means I need to run into 200 friends, strangers, family, and the rest, to get to my goal. Plus, I will get to meet 200 people.
NYRR offers free health and fitness programs to children across the nation. By teaching goal-setting, perseverance, determination and teamwork, NYRR youth programs are getting kids on track toward a healthy and successful life. I am excited about running for Team for Kids and I am sure you can imagine my fundraising efforts will do to help the kids being served through these programs. They learn the love of running and exercise and self-worth. All of these things are important for you to learn as you become an adult.
