Born to Run: AIDG Board Treasurer doing half marathon to support AIDG

Boston Half Marathon

Despite the sweltering heat, AIDG Board Treasurer Will Decaneas is training hard for the Boston Half Marathon to take place this fall. Help him forget those shin splits and go those extra miles by sponsoring his efforts. He’s trying to raise $5000 for AIDG before the big day, Oct 11, 2009. And as if all this weren’t enough, he’s even matching the highest donation up to $500.
