Washington Marine Marathon

katherine penna's Fundraising Page

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!  I am running the Marine Corps Marathon so that I can raise money for the organization Merlin USA.  Merlin works in regions suffering from natural and man-made disasters.  The organization specializes in health, saving lives in times of crisis and helping to rebuild shattered health systems.

All the money you donate through this page will go to Merlin (not to support my run or stay in DC).  Any amount is valued.  Your support can help save lives:

$2 can vaccinate a child

$20 can pay for 2,000 chlorine tablets for safe drinking water

$50 can pay for treatment to prevent HIV + pregnant women passing the virus onto babies

$200 can buy birthing kits for a community midwife to deliver ten babies

$1000 can buy medical kits to equip six community midwives

Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.

Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
