I'm training for my first marathon this fall and I'd really like to run the Marine Corps, but unfortunately, I missed the registration deadline. If you have a bib or know someone who does, please let me know. I'll be glad to buy it.
We still have bibs available. Unfortunately, the economy this year really hurt our runner recruitment and as such we have a few spots left. If you would like one we would be very happy to provide one for you. We also offer discounts starting at just two runners if you are interested in more than one bib. Check out our website at www.finishforkids.org and give us a call at 1-888-356-0299 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested. Hope to speak with you soon.

The Finish for Kids Marathon Program provides a unique opportunity to
make your marathon more meaningful. Please make the most of your
marathon experience. Give the gift of sight to an Ethiopian child. Let
a boy born into unfortunate circumstancse in the United States have a
chance to live by getting a necessary heart operation. As you
accomplish your goal of 26.2 miles let a child reach their goals by
giving them the gift of life.
Our Marathon Program has been established with a runner based approach.
Each runner is designated a personal representative within' the
organization to help you fully prepare to complete the race. A
multitude of race-day luxuries are available only to our runners.
Additionally, runners have their choice of two training programs. While
we are not the biggest charity partner at this years race we have a
staff with extensive experience planning charity marathon programs. Our
program is largely regarded in the non-profit world as the most
"runner-friendly". We look at every runner as our partner. We will help
you get to the finish line and with minimal effort and our support you
will help us meet our goals.
While we ask each runner to raise as much money as they can manage our
required minimum is one of the lowest of all of the charity partners.
For all the details of our program or to sign up please visit us online
at http://www.finishforkids.org/. You can always feel free to give us a call
at any time on our runners hotline 1-888-356-0299 or drop us an e-mail at email@example.com.
We are two relatively new organizations that support medical relief
missions in the United States and beyond. The Carefree Foundation has
recently completed two projects performing nearly 300 general surgery
and opthalmology operations in Peru and restoring vision to nearly 200
blind children in Ethiopia. In performing these operations the
organization also trained and equipped local hospitals with the skills
necessary to continue these operations for many years to come. Carefree
also organizes several domestic projects. Project clinic restoration
focuses on renovating all of the free clinics in the DC area. Doing
this will hopefully, improve the atmosphere of healing as well as
update medical equipment avaible to the underpriveleged. This is only a
small sample of the many projects and innovations carefree supports.
For more information about The Carefree Foundation please visit our
website at http://www.carefreefoundation.org/.
The Foundation for Internation Medical Relief of Children (FIMRC) also
supports medical relief missions. FIMRC builds and designs pediatric
clinics in impoverished countries and then supports medical missions to
those clinics. Currently, FIMRC has established clinics in Costa Rica,
El Slavador, Haiti, India and Uganda. For more information about FIMRC
please visit their website at http://www.fimrc.org/.
Both foundations and the countless people you will help, thank you ahead of time for your support.
