Running the YUTC ultra marathon for UNICEF! Please donate!

After thinking for a long time about this one, I have finally decided. I am going to run my first Ultra Marathon for UNICEF. It was a tough choice - one that came down to UNICEF and Doctors Without Borders. But in the end, my decision is UNICEF. Maybe Doctors Without Borders could be my cause for the Boston Marathon :)

You can find donation information, even donate online here:

Please donate what you can! Here are some suggestions to get you started:

#1. Donate a fixed amount for every mile/kilometer I will run for the Ultra Marathon. A 50k ultra marathon is a little over 31 miles. Try donating $1 for every mile!

#2. GO BIG! Donate a fixed amount for every mile I run during training and the Ultra combined!

#3. Make a one time donation, amount of your choice.

*SPREAD THE WORD! NOTIFY YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS! Send them a link to my blog or donation page!

In all emergencies, UNICEF focuses first on the survival of the children - which means providing health care, water and sanitation, and adequate nutrition.UNICEF is also there to bring immediate protection to children who have been abandoned or separated from their families, enrolled in army or rebel groups, or otherwise exploited and abused. And UNICEF works to get children back to school as soon as possible, to help them recover from the psychological distress associated with emergencies. It doesn’t take much to save a child’s life: $5 can provide one emergency health kit, $87 can provide a family water kit for ten households, and $188 can provide a “School-in-a-Box” kit. Please donate now!
