I'm Running for Philip!
The Philip Begonja Memorial Foundation was created to honor the extraordinary life of our son and to keep him as an active part of our lives. Philip was full of light, life, energy, intelligence and humor.
Dear loved ones,
Running, for me, has become an important part of my life.
On November 2nd, I will be putting my feet to the pavement for 26.2 miles in the 2014 NYC Marathon and each step will be for Philip.
The first $2,700 of "I'm Running for Philip!" will go to Team for Kids, who is sponsoring my entry into the event. The generous donations after that will go directly to The Philip Begonja Memorial Foundational and our mission to award educational grants and scholarships to deserving young people requiring financial assistance; award grants to educational institutions; and award grants for the improvement of public parks.

As of January, 2013 we are officially recogonized as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization and any contribution to our cause is tax deductable which is an added benefit to being able to contribute to a special organization like ours. Thank you.
