Giving Tuesday, Team for Kids

Giving Tuesday: Bringing communities together

You guys, this is why I’m Running for Team For Kids.

Not because I get automatic entry into the New York City Marathon (although that is a definite perk).

Not because I get anything for free (I still will pay the full registration fee + airfare + hotels).

Not because it makes me “look good”.

But because Team For Kids helps to bring communities together, inspire goal setting, and boost self esteem of children across the country.

I work at a pediatric hospital and, day in and day out, I see how much an impact a child’s daily environment makes on their healing and happiness. So why not doing something to ensure that the community and support system is strong?

Racing and training, Team for Kids

It’s t-shirt pimping time…

First off…TGIF! It’s a good day…Game of Thrones announced their premier date for July 16 and today is a scheduled rest day. So really, what could be better? (Other than George RR Martin releasing the 6th book…that would definitely be better)

Ok, I know this is my second fundraising post of the week. But I am legitimately excited about this campaign: NYC Marathon t-shirts!!! 100% of the proceeds of t-shirt sales will go directly to Team for Kids (meaning literally $0 will go towards my race registration, etc…they are truly making my miles count). I know I’m constantly shouting this from the rooftops, but Team for Kids develops programs for school age children across the country that are geared towards helping them learn how to live a healthy lifestyle, make goals, and practice teamwork.

Front & Back, also available in grey! $21.99

You can buy t-shirts here. And you can share, share, share the link with anyone who loves the NYC marathon/has run the NYC marathon/wants to run the NYC Marathon! My husband and I have definitely already ordered a shirt for ourselves and I’m already contemplating ordering some for all of my runner friends.

So now is the time where I try to pimp my t-shirts and implore you to consider ordering one for yourself! The campaign ends at the end of the month! Please and thank you and a million Friday high fives.
