Charity-o-Rama for August 8, 2007!

Posted by Filed Under: Charity & Fundraising

Let’s take a whirl on the charity cycle.

First up this week is Peter, who is raising money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma society. Peter says:

I am training for my first marathon ever in Disney. I am doing this because it has a personal meaning to
meal along with trying to do something good in society by helping others, even though I going to be busy with my last year of college.

Donate to Peter here.


Kathy, at Tiara Training, is raising money for the charity Girls on the Run. Kathy will be running the Detroit Free Press half-marathon in October as a member of Team Tiara. Girls on the Run is a non-profit prevention program that encourages preteen girls to develop self-respect and healthy lifestyles through running.

Kathy says:
As coach of girls on the run, I see the benefits and want to make the program available to more girls.

Donate to Kathy here.


Rob, from the optimistically named blog, Don’t Be Last!, is raising money for the Make-a-Wish Foundation

Rob says:

I got “volunteered” to run a triathlon. I hate running, biking AND swimming. But, instead of dropping out, I thought I’d use charity as motivation. For every minute I finish ahead of the last place contestant, my donors give me a set amount. If I finish last, I donate $10 per donor.

And that’s this week roundup! Dust off your wallet and donate!
