Help Nepal - donation match

Like so many of you, we watch TV or scroll news sites horrified at the images from the devastation in Nepal.  It's difficult to even comprehend the loss of life, the destruction and the altering of so many futures effected by the recent earthquake.  

We have seen the generosity of the running community in so many ways over the years - through the recent HMF CAN drive initiative, in support of many causes and charities that you run for or raise funds for.  And, of course, the overwhelming response at the Sandy Hook Run for the Families, when nearly $450,000 was raised by runners and supporters in Hartford on March 23, 2013.

We know there are many options out there to support the people of Nepal with monetary donations, we urge you to consider contributing to the cause that most compels you.  We're hoping to give you another reason to make that donation - we want to make your efforts go further.

Through the generosity of the Richard P. Garmany Fund at the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving, donations made through HMF will be matched, up to $5,000.  All donations made through HMF (online hereor in person by cash or check at CTfastrak 15K registration and results tents) will go to the American Red Cross relief effort.

In addition to the matching donation, any single donor who contributes $100 or more through this campaign will receive $20 in credit for a future Hartford Marathon Foundation event (to be used by December 31, 2015).  Please be sure to include your contact information with donation, HMF will send you the $20 non-transferable discount certificate.

DONATE HERE - cash/check donations also accepted at CTfastrak 15K registration and results tents on May 3.

Thanks for your continued support and generosity.
