Long Beach Marathon Fundraiser 2014



Hi everyone!

Last year, Speaking from the Heart launched a successful Long Beach Marathon Fundraiser. With the help of our runners and promoters, we raised a total of $3800. We have decided to launch another campaign in time for this year’s Long Beach Marathon in 2014.

We are looking for runners who will complete either the half or full marathon, and promoters who will help spread awareness of our mission to empower children to use their voice. Our goal this year is $5000, to employee two teachers, purchase learning materials, marketing and for traveling expenses.

With your help, we are certain that this year’s campaign will also be a success. Because of supporters like you we will continue to make a positive impact in the lives of the children that we work with. If you would like more information on how you can join our campaign, please email: SpeakingfromtheHeartCDV@gmail.com.

Together we can make great things happen,

Speaking from the Heart

Hello everyone,

Speaking from the Heart would like to invite you to our Long Beach Marathon Fundraiser. We realize that the greatest resource we have is people who have a passion for giving. People like you who give us the encouragement and the support that we need in order to make a bigger impact in the children that we work with.

Our story:
Speaking from the Heart came about through the volunteer work of Araceli Torres, a speech-language pathologist, and Daniel Sandoval, a behavioral therapist. Araceli has experience working in an orphanage in Mexico, providing speech therapy and has also taken bus trips with the Corazon de Vida Foundation. Daniel has been an active volunteer for the Corazon de Vida Foundation and has helped with fundraising events and has also gone on bus trips to Baja California. Araceli saw a need for speech and language services on her visits. So, Araceli and Daniel teamed up to form Speaking from the Heart to provide speech therapy in Baja California with the support of the Corazon de Vida Foundation.

The fundraiser:
The purpose of this fundraiser is to raise money for treatment (on-going therapy, communication systems/devices, and the implementation of programs that would facilitate the children’s ability to communicate), including travel costs and marketing expenses.

How to donate (tax deductible):
Go to: http://www.crowdrise.com/lbmarathon2013. Ask your friends to include your name when they donate so that we can keep track of how much each person is raising.

If you would like to join the campaign and/or run with us, please email SpeakingfromtheHeartCDV@gmail.com to receive more information.

With love,

Speaking from the Heart
