Will Power Slated to finish the 2017 NJ marathon and raise some funds for Camp Fatima along the way

I want to introduce everyone to my friend Will.  He is one of our campers at Camp Fatima of New Jersey… Will and I would like to announce that on Sunday, April 30, 2017, we will be participating in the NJ Marathon as Willpower!

that on April 30, 2017, we will be participating in the NJ Marathon (26.2 miles)!!! Back in May 1, 2011, Anton and I (Team Anton-y) successfully completed the NJ Marathon (26.2 miles) and together we raised over $32,000 for Camp Fatima!!

This time, I would like to give another child the opportunity to experience something he might never be able to do. For the next 6-7 months, Will and I (Will Power) will be raising funds for Camp Fatima!! #WillPower #NJMarathon2017 #CampFatimaOfNJ

 

On May 1, 2011, Anton and I successfully completed the NJ Marathon as Team Anton-y!!  Together, with the incredible support of friends, family and our community – we raised over $32,000 to benefit the children of Camp Fatima!!  We surpassed our goal of $1000 per mile / $26,000!!  This was a new and exciting part of our lives.  I want to take this moment to thank my good friend, Anton and the entire Frazile Family for welcoming me into their family and taking that memorable journey with me.

 

This time, I would like to give another child the opportunity to experience something they may not be able to do, to complete a marathon.  We often take things for granted.  I assure you that beautiful children like Will and Anton embrace life and all the gifts that it has to offer.  For the next 6-7 months, Will and I will be raising funds through a variety of events as Willpower!  The proceeds will all go to benefit Camp Fatima of New Jersey.  We invite you to make a donation and follow us on this amazing adventure and other fundraising events.
