I am the Event Coordinator for Camp Korey in Carnation. I’m reaching out to you and your running club to see if you know of anybody who would be interested in the opportunity to run the upcoming NYC Marathon on November 2, 2014, on behalf of Camp Korey.

Camp Korey serves children and their families with serious and life-altering medical conditions at no cost. We offer year-round recreation with full support for the medical needs of campers, plus all the fun of just being a kid. We have an incredible team of individuals, that we call Team Korey, who are dedicated to raising funds and awareness for Camp Korey through athletic events. We are a passionate team of community members, challenging ourselves by running, walking, biking and climbing on behalf of Camp Korey's mission to provide free-of-charge, transformative camp experiences for children living with serious medical conditions.

A few select (and fantastic) local events in the northwest have selected Camp Korey as an official charity partner. And because of this partnership, I have a few registration spots in the NYC Marathon that I can open up to interested individuals. Often these partnerships come with extra perks like complimentary race entry and for this event, to reserve a spot with Team Korey, we would need a fundraising commitment of $3,500 for each runner.
