Former Marine needing 2 bibs

 

I am looking for two bibs, one for me and one for my wife.  Left USMC due to disability and want to show I can do it!

    Do you still need 2 bibs?  My boyfriend and I registered but he's torn his hamstring.  Got official word from doc yesterday that he can't train for 8 more weeks, so our plans have changed.

    Hello,

    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 marathon@finishforkids.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 marathon@finishforkids.org.

    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.

     

    Sincerely,
