Michael Calvert, executive director of the Downey Chamber of Commerce, is soliciting donations as he prepares to run the L.A. Marathon this Sunday.
Supporters can pledge to make a per-mile donation. For example, a $1 pledge multiplied by 26.2 (the length of the course) would equal a $26.20 donation.
Proceeds will be used to remodel the offices of the Downey Chamber of Commerce.
To make a pledge, email email@example.com.
