a public service message from rundangerously :D
registration for the nyc half marathon has closed and the results of the lottery should be announced later this week. runners not selected in the lottery can still register for the race via the charity program. the world lung foundation, a charitable organization engaged in world-wide efforts to improve lung health, is a program participant. i actively support the efforts of wlf and hope runners who plan to run for charity will consider doing so on behalf of wlf.
contributions raised on behalf of wlf will be used to "provide hundreds of life-saving inhalers for asthmatic children at wlf-supported programs in Kenya and other low-income countries." and, more significantly, wlf has agreed to match those contributions, dollar-for-dollar, after race administrative expenses have been covered.
check out their site for more detailed information.
UPDATE: still space on wlf team!
FINAL UPDATE: check out photos of wlf team at nyc half marathon!
