The New York City Marathon and I have some unfinished business.
My plan is to settle this...this year. But I do not want to pay a huge amount of money to one of the international travel partners of the New York City Marathon. I would rather put this money towards charity. Or just run to raise money for a charity.
Can you guess what's coming next?
So, in the last couple of weeks I've been emailing several charities. I didn't hear back from most of them. Even after emailing them again and again...and again. For example: I would have loved to raise money for the American Cancer Society, and even after emailing them the personal story of our family, and telling them that that's the reason why I would love to join their 'Determination' program...no answer. Any advice on getting through their selection process?
Okay, so I haven't heard back from most of the charities, but I did get a reply from some of them. And those replies were extremely nice! Thing is that I need to register soon, and I really can't make up my mind. I've narrowed it down to these three:
1. Team for Kids;
2. Fred's Team;
3. Team Hole in the Wall.
Any advice? Any personal experiences with these charities?
