I know many of us are either running a spring marathon for a charity or know somebody who is. To help with fundraising I thought I would start a thread where RA masters can list people and causes in case anybody wishes to make a donation. In my case, I have a good friend who is raising money for Summer Search in exchange for a Boston Marathon bib. Her donation page can be found at http://www.razoo.com/story/Boston-Marathon-2013-Summer-Search-1?referral_code=share. Feel free to add your 2 cents. Well $10 since that is the minimum donation!
Good luck with both fund raising and racing to all our charity bib runners.
Live like you are dying not like you are afraid to die.

Even though I'm a qualified runner at Boston, I'm still running for the Melanoma Foundation of New England. As a dermatologist who diagnoses and treats melanoma wayyyy too often, I know the good work of the MFNE up close and personal.

As many of you know I am running Boston for the Matty Eappen Foundation which helps to educate and prevent Shaken Baby Syndrome - now called Abusive Head Trauma. I have a personal connection with the foundation after working with Matty's dad Sunny for many years at the Brigham. I have a $4000 commitment and am a little over half way there - also have a rafffle set up (includes gift cards which are easy to mail)
If you are inclined to donate, please follow the link: http://w.mattyeappen.org/denise-illsley.html or if you would like a ticket or more for the raffle, please send me a pm. Thank you!!
I figured I would bump this up just in case some had not seen it. If you do donate to one of the RA Master charities feel free to put in a line here and keep this thread visible!

My friend Kathy Green wants to run Boston and Meb is her hero. She is raising money for the Meb Foundation so that she can get her charity bib.
Running is stupid
