Erin Leigh is running her 2nd marathon November 2nd in NYC to send 26 girls to school in Nepal -- again!
WE SET OUT TO DO THE IMPOSSIBLE...
On March 17, 2013, Brooke & I (Erin Leigh) completed the Georgia Marathon and thanks to you -- our amazing friends, family, strangers on Twitter, new friends on Instagram -- sponsored 26 girls in Nepal to go to school.
But it didn't stop at our goal of $7800: as of March 17th, we had raised $9,094. (!!!) Since our goal was to fund one year of education for 26 girls, we decided to put the funds that were given beyond this to the girls' 2nd year of school.
AND THEN I GOT A SPOT IN THE NYC MARATHON!
It might sound like coincidence or pure serendipity, but that sounds like a great way to make an even bigger difference. Can we raise enough to finish sponsoring 26 girls' 2nd year of school?
2 years of school for 26 girls in Nepal is $15,600, and we're already $9,094 of the way there.
THAT'S RIGHT. WE'RE DOING IT AGAIN.
Will you join me and be part of the NYC Marathon? Your tweets and texts and cheering and T-shrit wearing means more than you could know. It's time to start #26miles26girls up again, and invite your friends to join in, too! What you can do:
1) Tweet inspiration and support!
2) Check out the Facebook album with the names and faces of the girls we're sponsoring together
3) Give what you can - $10, $100, whatever
4) Invite your friends! Host a pasta party, sell a T-shirt, bring cupcakes to work in exchange for donations :)
It is a huge honor to be running NYC in this very iconic year, and I mark every mile with the girls in mind and your support that makes this possible.
Let's do this!
