Kirshie is Running the NYC Marathon

About This Campaign

Dear Friends,

If you are reading this letter, chances are you have supported me in the past in my efforts to fundraise almost $70,000 while training for marathons. Thank you. And just so you know, I am at it again!

On November 5th, I will run the NYC Marathon in memory of my father, Morris. I can’t think of a better way to share with you who he was than to share excerpts of my eulogy…

My dad was the kindest man with the most gentle soul. He had the ability to make everyone around him smile, feel comfortable and laugh at his corny jokes. He had an amazing amount of self-esteem - those of you who knew how much he loved to sing knew that when the opportunity arose, he would take the microphone...no matter how good or bad he sounded. For those of you who thought he was quiet, it's not true. When given the opportunity one on one, he LOVED to talk... About everything. Sports, coupons, gas prices, current events... He loved to learn about you and paid close attention to details. 

My dad was the strongest man in the world - for as long as I can remember he was in and out of the hospital. His body endured so much trauma and all the while, he never complained. I hope to one day be as strong a person as my father was. I hope to one day emulate all of my dad's amazing qualities. 

For those who knew him, I'm sorry for your loss of a very special friend.  For those yet to meet him, I'm sorry for what you missed.

I am running the marathon with efforts to raise $3,600 for an organization I have been volunteering for since 2011 - KiDS NEED M♥RE. KiDS NEED M♥RE is a nonprofit charitable organization dedicated to enhancing the lives of children, families & young adults coping with cancer and life-threatening illness.

How you can help:
• I have set a fundraising goal of at least $3,600.
• Every single penny helps!  A $50 donation is less than $2 for every mile I will run. 100% of your donation goes to KiDS NEED M♥RE.
• You can donate online.

Thank you for your love and support. I hope to hear from you very soon!
Always,  
Jennifer

 The M❤️RE Hope For Johnathon Program delivers specialized packages to families and provides peer mentors that make friendly home and hospital visits. 

At KiDS NEED M❤️RE  we believe that children and families coping with life threatening illness and trauma deserve to do M❤️RE than just survive. They deserve to thrive! Our programs and activities are designed to reunite siblings and allow parents time for respite. We create networks with other families that are facing similar experiences. We believe fun and friendship heals. J

    Gook Luck . I know you will do great because you already exhibit the traits that you wrote about your Dad. Cancer and Kids are both close to my heart. Thanks for working so hard for such a worthy cause.
