Dear Family and Friends:

My mission in life is to pay it forward and give back.  There is no one I know who can say they do not have a friend or relative that has needed some help in their life.  I have found a great way to help through participating in the Arlington Bunny Hop Charity 5K Run/Walk.

On June 12 I am lacing up my running shoes to support the Bunny Hop 5K race and its Arlington charities:  Bridges to Independence and OAR (Offender Aid and Restoration).  Over the past three years, the Bunny Hop has donated $37,132.68 to these two Arlington non-profit organizations which are significantly partnered with Arlington County Government support services.

I am taking on this challenge in honor of people in our community who need our support.

Now, your part is easy.  All you need to do is to commit to supporting my campaign.  My part is a little tougher, I’ve committed to raising $____ by completing the running in this race.

Please donate generously as you can by supporting my campaign.  Every donation counts, no matter how large or small.  Here’s a link to a donation website.  Select Arlington Bunny Hop to enter your donation.

[Include any personal connection to the charities or a personal story if you want.]Thank you in advance for your consideration. 

Thanks for helping a very worthy cause!
