I was contacted the other day by Sara from The Fresh Air Fund in the USA who brought my attention to this really great cause. The Fresh Air Fund provides free summer camp holidays to children from families in New York City, who can’t afford to send their kids to camp or on holiday during their school break.
What really intrigued me about the initiative however is that they have a team of runners who are doing the New York City half-marathon, to help raise funds and awareness of this program. As you all know I’m all about using an event for something good, so if any of you are doing this race (its in on August 16th) and would like to run for a cause then sign up. Of course if I was in the USA I’d be doing it AND I’d gladly run for the Fresh Air Fund!
Good luck guys!!
