My fundraising  goal: $1,500
Total raised so far:   $1,128

Dear Friends and Family,

Thank you very much for visiting this page. On March 18, I will be running in the NYC Half Marathon. It will be my first time running for a charity.

I chose the Children of Peru Foundation because we visited Peru 5 years ago with my husband Josh and our son Miles who was almost 2 at the time. We fell in love with the country's landscapes, extraordinary culture, and the kindness of all the people we met. We also realized there was a lot we could do to improve the life of Peruvian children, particularly starting with basics such as health and education.


The Children of Peru Foundation is an organization which provides funding for programs run by local non-governmental organizations. Programs include helping kids with disabilities get access to specialized education; providing immediate medical assistance as well as surgeries to children whose families would not other be able to afford the cost of care otherwise; fighting diseases such as tuberculosis which have almost been eradicated in the Western hemisphere but still kill children every year in Peru.

You can help support not only my 2012 resolution to run more miles and at a faster pace, but most importantly a truly great cause. My objective is to raise $1,500. No donation is too small, and donations are 100% tax deductible in the US as the Children of Peru Foundation has a 501(c)(3) tax exempt status. Your employer may also have a generous matching gift program which could double your donation.

There are two ways to donate:
