ING Hartford Marathon Final Countdown

With just a few days to go, the 12.14 team is on final countdown for the ING Hartford Marathon 2013. Our training is done, and this week is all about rest, focus and anticipation.

I'm very proud to announce that we're within reach of our $10,000 fund raising goal and, of course, so grateful to the hundreds who have sponsored us so far. There is still time to sponsor individual runners as well as the entire 12.14 team, so please click the sponsor button if you'd like to support a wonderful cause.

  Note: runners will be notified when you make a donation in their name.   Security


Our online donation service offers the following statement about the security of your credit card and debit transactions:

Everything donors enter is encrypted so it can't be spied on by anyone else. It's encrypted with 256-bit SSL (also known as HTTPS). Sensitive credit card information is stored only when necessary – for example, when a donor sets up a recurring transaction. When we do store information like this, it's also encrypted (essentially scrambled) using an algorithm called AES-256 in "cypher-block-chaining mode".

Our servers are behind hardware and software firewalls, which serve to protect your data and our code from hackers and intruders. We're also a PCI Compliant service provider, which means we've been certified to follow a comprehensive set of rules created by the credit card companies to ensure that security precautions are held to the highest standard.




In addition to physical prep and fund raising, the 12.14 team has been very active building awareness for our Hartford Marathon run as well as for the 12.14 Foundation's higher objectives. You can view some of the resulting TV coverage by clicking on any of the images to on the right of this page. You'll also find a complete listing of recent 12.14 news articles and interviews on our Media Coverage pages. Here are a few about our activities at the Hartford Marathon:
