Most of you know I am running the Twin Cities marathon in early October. As a part of that I am raising money for Twin Cities RISE!
The truth about all this is...I waited too long to register for this race and ended up having to pick a charity partner in order to be able to register for the race. I have already contributed the full amount required by Twin Cities RISE, but I really liked this group and thought I would ask friends and family if they could contribute any amount, $5 to $26.2, to this great organization. No pressure if you just can't do it!
Twin Cities RISE has a national reputation as a highly effective anti-poverty program that provides high quality work and life skills training, culminating in sustainable, full-time living wage jobs. You can feel very confident and proud that your contributions and funds raised are going to an organization that gets great results.
Thanks for any support you can give, or just for reading the email!
