Raise money for children by running

I am a very passionate runner myself so it gives me great pleasure to present to you a unique fund raising event. By running this year’s New York City Half-Marathon on August 16th you could also help Fresh Air Fund for children. Since 1877, The Fresh Air Fund, a not-for-profit agency, has provided free summer experiences in the country to more than 1.7 million New York City children from disadvantaged communities. During the last year’s run they raised more than $125,000 which went directly to their free programs.

You can help out either by running for Fresh Air Fund-Racers team or hosting children in your home. Find out more at The Fresh Air Fund web site and go out and do something good for yourself and others.

Wii Fun Center

Wii Fun Center
Nintendo and Starlight Starbright Children’s Foundation have been partners for more than 15 years, bringing Fun Center mobile entertainment units to children staying in hospitals. Recently they introduced a completely new Fun Center, based around Nintendo Wii, which can be rolled right up to the side of patient’s beds or anywhere in a hospital setting.

A Fun Center is a mobile entertainment unit containing a flat-screen television, DVD player, and Nintendo Wii™ system.  Whether hospitalized children are nervously awaiting surgery, sitting restlessly during a long treatment, or feeling lonely in their hospital room, the Fun Center helps them cope by providing endless hours of fun and distraction. To date, more than 5,000 Fun Centers have been sponsored by companies, foundations and individuals and are being enjoyed at hospitals across North America.

The great thing is that you can donate a Fun Center to a hospital of your choice. Just be sure to order two, one for the children and other for the staff :-). Sponsorship is currently $4,250 which includes the cost of the unit, shipping and administration, and repair and maintenance for the life of the Fun Center by dedicated Starlight staff.
