|Friends and Family,
Thanks for taking the time to look at my fundraising site! I am running the Marine Corps Marathon on October 25, 2009 and have planned to raise money for a cause that I have become particularly interested in.
Witness Justice is an organization based in Frederick, Maryland which helps raise awareness and funds for victims of violence and trauma. The violence can be from war, abuse, neglect, disaster, or terrorism. Witness Justice helps to provide informations, discussion forums, and help for victims and their families. To find out more about this group, you can visit their website at http://www.witnessjustice.org/.
Team Heal Trauma, the team that I am running with, has set a goal for $750 raised. I would like to surpass this goal if possible. If you can give any amount of donation to my cause, I would appreciate it, if not, please visit the website anyway and send the email along to a friend or colleague who might also be interested. It's really easy to donate, the donation can be made in your name, and you can even post a personal message. The money will be directly given to the organization, and it is tax deductible.
If you have any questions about my training, my cause, or my fundraising, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Also, every so often I'll be updating this site about my training progress, so check back!
Thanks!, Erin Cox

End of the first week of September and training has slowed, I'm trying to make the runs longer though! Hill/Speed work is still being incorporated
