I will be running my 3rd marathon on February 1st , 2009 and this time I have decided to dedicate it for a cause. I will be running the Surf City marathon on behalf of "Free Wheelchair Mission" a non-profit organization whose mission is to transform lives through the gift of mobility.
Traveling in India, I have seen people drag themselves and in some cases confined to small spaces because they cannot afford a wheelchair. It is painful to watch what they go through and many of those images have had a deep impact on me.
I truly can relate to what "Free Wheelchair Mission" does in the developing nations by donating free wheelchairs to the needy. It is estimated that a staggering 100 million people are immobile due to the lack of a wheelchair.
By running this marathon I hope to raise funds and also awareness about the lack of mobility for millions of people in the developing world.
You too can donate for this worthy cause by clicking on the title of this post "Running For A Cause". You will be making a HUGE difference in someones life and I would be extremely THANKFUL for that.
