In January of 2014, I will be running the Walt Disney World® Half Marathon as part of the Run GKTW Team. My goal is to raise $3,000 for Give Kids The World, a non-profit that exists solely to fulfill the wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses and their families.
I've volunteered hours at Give Kids the World over the last 10 years, and am such a huge fan of the organization! It is a fun-filled place where kids with life-threatening illnesses can have a real vacation, and make memories with their familes. I've met a lot of wonderful families who have told me how much Give Kids the World means to them.
Give Kids The World has been awarded a four-star rating for sound fiscal management for eight consecutive years by Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent evaluator of charities. In 2010, GKTW was recognized as the #1 most fiscally responsible charity by Worth Magazine, and MSN Money named GKTW the Highest Rated Charity in America in 2012. Give Kids The World’s commitment to accountability and transparency assures supporters that their donation is used in the most responsible and efficient way possible.
Since its founding in 1986, Give Kids The World has welcomed more than 125,000 families from all 50 states and more than 70 countries. In 2012, the Village served 7,337 families—the highest number in the organization’s 27 year history. During my trip to Orlando, I will have the opportunity to visit Give Kids The World Village and see the impact of your donations first-hand. I hope you will consider sponsoring me for this very worthwhile cause. Donating through this website is simple and secure. If you prefer to make a contribution using cash or check (made payable to Give Kids The World), please contact me directly.
Thank you for support!
