Great news! With the help of friends,family and coworkers at Pioneer Investments, I was able to raise over $1,500.00 for this great charity! Thanks to everyone who donated. We’ll be running at Borderland State Park, Easton MA – 2pm tomorrow!
The following is quoted from a letter written by Christopher Rappold, The founder of Personal Best Karate.
“As the fall approaches we are fully underway in the planning stages for the 2011 Turkey Brigade. As you may know, 2010 was a banner year for this effort. Together though the dedication of our student base we were able to provide over 2,000 families from our local communities a delicious Thanksgiving Dinner. This year our goals are just as lofty and with your help we are hoping to continue to provide this support that so many families depend on Personal Best Charity to fulfill.”
My family and I have participle in this event for 6 years. We started by delivering turkeys and trimmings but the last couple of years we’ve helped with the fund raising, running the 5K and delivering the dinners. It is an incredible sight to see over 2000 meals being staged for delivery! Check out the photo! It is truly a heartwarming experience for all.
Once again, my 10 year old son and I are running and we’re looking for sponsors. Any amount of money you can donate. No amount is too small. Please contact me if you’d like to help or see me at Fit Club on Wednesday night. Your donation and our run will help over 2,000 families have a nice Thanksgiving dinner in their homes.
Please make checks payable to Personal Best Charities and mail them to me – Tom Murphy 60 State Street 4th Floor, Boston MA 02109
The Trot is set for October 15th at Borderland State Park.
