Runners Walkers & Hikers Unite & Move to Provide Smiles
Having traveled to Mercy Hospital numerous times in the past 3 years, I can tell you that society calls the deformed children of Kolkata, India cursed. But for every $500 raised in support through Calcutta Mercy, a surgical procedure is provided by a loving medical team to repair the cleft lip or palate, thereby removing the darkness from a young life.
My goal for this campaign is to gain your support in combing our total miles walked, ran or hiked for the year and ask you to give or raise at least one dollar for each of your logged miles toward the cause. If we walk, run, and hike together for this purpose we can relay run the 8,361 miles and deliver a 10,000 dollar check to Mercy Hospital, putting smiles on the faces of approximately 20 of these beautiful kids who only need a chance.
Please join me by logging your miles, raising support and investing personally. In asking friends to sponsor you, or in making a per mile gift of your own, you are changing the physical face and more importantly the life of a child forever.
