This campaign closed on Nov 25, 2011 and $6,025 is being sent to the field.
Hi! My name is Bobby Curtis. I'm a professional long distance runner and I'll be running my first marathon on November 6th at the 2011 ING New York City Marathon. For every mile I run while training for the marathon (up to 22 miles a day), I will be donating $1 to Charity: Water. I have a goal of raising $5,000 for Charity: Water. But! I don't think I'll be able to run 5,000 miles between now and November 6th, so I need your help.
I'm having a prediction contest. For a donation of $10 (or more if you'd like), you can predict my finishing time at the ING New York City Marathon. Just leave your time prediction (seconds included) in the comments section when making a donation. The winner of this contest will receive all the benefits that go along with donating $5,000 to Charity: Water, including:
-Your name attached to a clean water drilling rig in Ethiopia
-A matching plaque for your home or office
-Photo and video updates of your drilling rig in action
-Real time GPS updates as your rig moves throughout Africa
-A pair of Reebok running shoes
-A free dinner with me! (optional)
I think that's a pretty good deal for 10 bucks! Please spread the word and help Charity: Water.
All donations made to Bobby’s campaign
|Tony DeSabato and Marcus O'Sullivan||$200|
You fundraised, donated and came to a birthday party -- all to help us raise money for two new drilling rigs in Tigray, Ethiopia. Each rig will go on to drill 80 new wells, and together they'll change 80,000 lives -- every single year for the next 15 years.
100% of the money raised by this campaign is being used to bring clean water to help those in need. In 21 months we’ll be able to show you exactly where the money went and who it helped.
