Longtom Marathon

Or: We Are Exercising, So Please Give These Kids Money

Lauren and I will be participating in the Longtom half-marathon next month. The proceeds will go to the KLM Foundation, which is an organization that gives hard-working, underprivileged students the opportunity for a college education that they would otherwise not be given.

It's up to each runner to raise at least $100. If you have $5, and you'd like to help us out, we'd really appreciate your support. And if that's not enough emotional manipulation for you, I encourage you to think of the children; please won't someone think of the children!?

If you'd like to make a donation, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the KLM foundation website:
  2. Click on "Donate" in the upper right corner.
  3. Fill out the form. Please remember to put either my first and last name or Lauren's first and last name in the "Longtom Marathon" field.

We've been training for a few months now, and we're really excited to give this half marathon a shot. If you can help us make a difference -- even if the help is solely in the form of moral support -- we promise to repay you by having a great time.

Thanks. Much love.
