Put Some Spring In Your Step!


Hi Maurice!

Cherry blossoms, sun shining, hearts beating.

April 13 is a date you don’t want to miss! Stroll through Central Park with us and take on the 4 miles for your love of Central Park and love of Concern.

For the past 15 years the Concern Spring Run has been one of our most popular events and is growing every year, attracting almost 1,700 supporters and raising over $200,000 in 2012!

We have a big goal ahead of us this year, and the deadline is rapidly approaching. So far, we’ve raised $12,252. We have about a month to go, and $187,748 until we reach our goal. Of each dollar raised, 92 cents will go directly to the programs in the field- this has earned us the coveted 4 stars from Charity Navitagor- the top rating from the charity watchdog!

Could you, right now, while you’re thinking about it, sign up for the run or make a donation?

In return, we will continue to do the best we can, for as many as we can, for as long as we can for the men, women and children born into lives of extreme poverty. We promise you that we will go above and beyond to help those who need it most.

Register now as an individual or rally your friends to form a team! We’ve got lots of great challenges to bring out your competitive spirit, and fantastic prizes for runners and fundraisers. It’s a great day out-see for yourselves!

Visit www.concernusa.org/springrun to register or make a donation.

With heartfelt thanks to you,

Dara and Jillian
Events Team
