Thank you for visiting my fundraising page! I will be running the Maine Coast Marathon on May 11th, 2014, through Operation Jack, "fighting autism one mile at a time". On race day, 85% of the money raised will be sent to the Autism Society of Maine. They rely solely on donations to cover costs for running their programs and activities that help to bring awareness and community to individuals and families who are affected by autism spectrum disorders. Read about how your donations can make a difference here: http://www.asmonline.org/involved_donations_communityimpact.asp
Donating through my website is simple, fast and secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.
My hope is to raise at least $500 to help support the Autism Society of Maine and Operation Jack. If you would please consider any donation it would be greatly appreciated! The training program that I am using for my marathon will have me running 784 training miles starting January 5th to race day on May 11th. Two simple ways of donating would be 1 cent for each of the miles I need to run to get myself prepared to cross the finish line ($7.84), or perhaps just a donation of $2.62 for the 26.2 miles of the race.
I will also be holding a donation contest- guess my 26.2 mile finishing time! Anyone who donates a guess for my marathon finish time will be in the running to win a prize. My current slowest marathon is 4:43, my current fastest is 3:58 (so for a guess of 3 hours and 58 minutes, donate $3.58). You may put in as few or as many guesses as you would like (if you donate a total amount I will be in touch via email for your guesses), and whoever guesses the correct time will win a gift from Erica Sara Designs! (those who guess the same correct time will be put into a drawing). All donors will be in a drawing for a pair of Pro Compression marathon socks! If you choose to make an even donation, each $10 donation will allow you 3 finishing time guesses. Any donation over $20 will also receive an Operation Jack tech shirt!
Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
