It is with great pleasure that I write to inform you that one of our athletes (Kristy Fogarty) has been selected to run the NYC marathon. Kristy will be running the marathon for the Heart Foundation. She'll be collecting donations toward this cause, and you can read more about this below. Thanks for your support if you are able to help out:
I am one of over 100 000 people who have taken up the challenge to run the New York Marathon in November this year.
I am proud to be running this year in support of the Heart Foundation. Every year the Heart Foundation in Australia enables a group of 20 people to participate in this Heart Challenge fundraising event, and together, through donations and fundraising events, we aim to raise up to $250,000. I am the only West Australian running this year for the charity.
Heart disease kills one Australian almost every 10 minutes- deaths that are largely preventable. Unfortunately, many of you will know someone who is living with, or dying from, heart disease. Sadly, as recently as last week, my Dad lost his best friend to an unexpected heart attack. The impact such a sudden death has on so many people is devastating.
I ask you or your organisation to support me and donate to this important cause by clicking this link to my sponsor page: http://my.artezpacific.com/personalPage.aspx?registrationID=102367. All donations go directly to help the Heart Foundation fund life saving research and prevention programs to combat Australia's leading cause of death- heart, stroke and blood vessel disease. Donations of $2 or more are tax-deductible.
Your support in this Heart Challenge fundraising event would be greatly appreciated. Please forward this email to your friends so that they can also support this great cause.
If you would like more information about this Heart Challenge fundraising event or any details about the challenge I am undertaking to complete a marathon please call me on mobile 0413 060 412.
