Skram Media Publisher, Mark Crowther, Runs the New York Marathon for The Twin Towers Orphan Fund


Mark Crowther, the Publisher of Skram Media is running the New York City Marathon this year — November 2nd, 2008.

This will be Crowther's 5th marathon, and each time he runs, he'll try and put the pain to good use by raising sponsorship for a worthy cause. This year Crowther is raising money for a non profit called the Twin Towers Orphan Fund. The Twin Towers Orphan Fund was founded on September 12, 2001 for the sole purpose of providing educational and welfare assistance to the children who were orphaned (who lost one or both parents) by the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. You can read more here: TTOF is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, public benefit organization, Fed. Tax ID# 57-1197371. Visit Mark Crowther's First Giving page, to make giving your donations that much easier:“I know many of you already make your own contributions to the community and good causes - if you can help the TTOF by sponsoring my run, that'd be greatly appreciated. And please do pass this link on to others who you feel may want to contribute.”

Thanks, Mark
