Dear friend, family, or maybe like one to two cowokers max,
After the wild success of last year's fundraising efforts, I wanted to run this dang thing back! Last year YOUR generosity helped cut a check for more than $750 to So Others Might Eat, an organization that serves those experiencing homelessness and poverty in the District.
To paraphrase Bernie, I am once again asking for your financial support. Give a little, give a lot, don't give anything--I don't know your life! Do what's right for you. There's a 5k or whatever, but who cares. If you want to see me run, we can set that up for a small fee as well.
If doing a good deed isn't enough, my birthday is literally on Thanksgiving this year and I will accept a donation in lieu of a present. Thankfully, charity comes in all sizes, because after last year my running clothes are getting real tight.
