Hi XXX,

I wanted to share some awesome news with you! I am running in the Rogers Insurance Run for L'Arche in March, and I need your support. 

L’Arche is a non-profit organization in Calgary that helps people with developmental disabilities, providing them with safe, comfortable homes, a loving and respecting community, and a life with dignity by contributing to their involvement in day programs, work, church and other public events. The Rogers Insurance Run for L'Arche is an annual run that helps further their work in Calgary! We want our neighbours and friends with developmental disabilities to know that they are loved and a valuable part of our city.

I have joined the mission to create a more compassionate world. Are you in? Please help me reach my fundraising goal of $XXX. And please don't hesitate to spread the word! Every donation, big or small, makes a huge difference!

You can support my run here: xxx.com
I'd also love to see you at the run on Saturday, March 28th, cheering me on!

Thank you for your support!!

Sincerely,
XXX
