Well, for me, right now, at this moment TODAY IS THE DAY! It is the day that I launch my long-awaited (well, by me and the causes I'm running for, anyway) 2014 running fundraising initiative. 4 Marathons. 100+ Miles. 4 Excellent Causes. And, it all starts 100 days from today, on July 19, 2014 in a lovely field in eastern Vermont. The causes - and the fundraising links - are listed at the top of this blog, but here they are, with a quick word about each:
The Jimmy Fund: Who doesn't want to help fight cancer?Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation:Who doesn't want to help people with spinal cord injury?NH Campaign for Legal Services: Who doesn't favor justice for all,especially for the poor?NH Public Television: Who doesn't love public broadcasting? Sesame Street helped me learn English. "Downton Abbey" is helping me perfect it. :-)
I've also set up a Facebook page, and am affectionately calling this initiative "Ron's Run for Jimmy, Chris, Justice & Elmo".
So, please, donate if you can. Spread the word. Send a good vibe. Pray, if that's your thing.
Nothing about my running history guarantees that I will be able to complete this undertaking. So, it's just natural, that 100 days to go until I toe the line, "TODAY IS THE DAY!"
Thanks, for reading this, and for sharing this incredible journey with me.
