I will run my first marathon for SAVE THE FROGS! nonprofit organization, in hopes of raising awareness about amphibian conservation and environmental education.

I arrived home after a grueling 10-mile run, when my brother asked, “Are you running for the frogs?” His question brought back memories of our childhood. I spent my time outside exploring the woods, climbing trees and catching frogs along the creek. Years later, I realized my interest in frogs grew into a greater appreciation towards our planet.

On October 16, 2010 I will take on my first 26.2 mile run in hopes of raising $500 dollars for SAVE THE FROGS! nonprofit organization.

As a child, teenager and young adult, I’ve been active playing soccer, running track and cross country, but never imagined tackling a full marathon. My goal for the Under Armor Baltimore Marathon is to average 8:46 minute miles, finishing just under 4 hours. Reaching this goal will take dedication and hard training.

I pledge to devote my efforts towards this significant nonprofit.

Why does SAVE THE FROGS! need your help?
Frogs are disappearing! One-third of the world’s 6,418 amphibian species are threatened with extinction. In the past 30 years, 200 amphibian species have gone extinct due to human activity, making them the most threatened group of animals on the planet. Improving schools environmental programs would give children the opportunity to get outside and learn about our living communities.

I’m asking you to make a generous, tax-deductable donation to enable our future generations the chance to become informed citizens.

Thank you for your support!
