So I'm about 10% of the way to my goal of raising $2500 for the Bachmann-Strauss Foundation and the marathon is about 2 months away.  For those of you who have already donated, I really appreciate it.  For those of you who haven't yet and would be willing to, I could really use the help.

If you missed my original post, I'm currently training for the NYC Marathon this upcoming November in an effort to raise money for a charity. I'm running to benefit The Bachmann-Strauss Dystonia & Parkinson Foundation and I would greatly appreciate if you guys could help me out.

Believe it or not, the Beantown Bloggery has almost 6,000 subscribers. If everyone were to donate a dollar, I would more than double my goal of raising $2,500. I'm up to about 6 miles per run right now, only 20 more to go......

Here's a little bit about the charity I'm running for:

The Bachmann-Strauss Dystonia & Parkinson Foundation (BSDPF) was founded in 1995 as a nonprofit 501(c)3 by Louis Bachmann(1916-2000) and Bonnie Strauss. The Foundation was started to encourage new research and scientists in the fields of dystonia and Parkinson disease, and to heighten awareness about the diseases. The early stages of scientific research are often the hardest to fund. Following a similar concept to that of a "venture capital", seed money is Funded through annual grant awards, this helps to leverage new ideas and advances in the fields. To date, the Foundation has allocated over $11 million dollars to over 210 grants around the world. These grants have helped to bring greater insight into the causes and-we hope-cures for dystonia and Parkinson's disease.
