Children's Hospital Boston
"Mile for Miracles"

When I was 10 years old, I went to the Children's Hospital Boston for speech therapy.

Children's Hospital Boston is an approved charity of the BAA Boston Marathon.

Douglas Welch, a virtual friend on dailymile, is running the Boston Marathon for the "Miles for Miracles" fund-raising program of the hospital. Would you consider sponsoring Doug in his marathon run on APRIL 18? You can make a donation on his fund raising page:
https://howtohelp.childrenshospital.org/bostonmarathon/pfp/?ID=wd0030

Doug has committed to raise $10,000 this year, in memory of Brenya Sullivan. That's a high amount, isn't it? Doug needs to be creative in his fund-raising for the hospital. He has created the "36k for miracles" challenge on dailymile:

On SUNDAY, MARCH 20, 2011, you can run a virtual race where ever you are to complete the challenge.
Choose a 5K, 10K, Half Marathon, or a 36K race.
Make a donation ("registration fee") on his fund raising page.
--$5 for the 5K
--$10 for the 10K
--$13.10 for the Half Marathon
--$25 for the full 36k Challenge

~~~ Please read the challenge page for additional details! ~~~

The children will get "Miracles" from your donations. Thank you!
