This year, I will join a group of local runners participating in various marathons as a means of raising money and awareness for Centre Volunteers in Medicine. Marathoners for Medicine has grown from a single person running the Boston Marathon and collecting money in support of his run, to a group of about 20 runners who run several different marathons in support of CVIM.
Please help me raise funds and awareness for CVIM.
CVIM is a free clinic providing medical and dental care, medication assistance and case management services to the thousands living or working in Centre County without healthcare coverage. Every day, CVIM cares for people with any number of treatable illnesses and conditions, such as: high blood pressure, diabetes, extreme dental decay, and mental health issues.
Once again, I am running a spring marathon to support CVIM. This year, probably beyond my better judgement, I'll be doing two marathons. I'll be running the Boston Marathon (eee!) as part of the Hyland's Teachers Team. 20 days later, I'll be running the Pittsburgh Marathon for the third year in a row. While this may not be the wisest decision ever, it will help to know that I'm helping residents of Centre County who can't afford healthcare coverage to get the help they need.
Please join me in the fundraising effort for CVIM.
