postheadericon Join Vinum Ferus on its Marathon Journey to Support ¡Salud!

Natalie Bowman Lee of Vinum Ferus is running her first marathon in support of ¡Salud! and needs your help to achieve her goal of raising $2,500! If just 385 people donate $0.25 per mile she runs (a total of $6.50), she’ll have raised enough to provide a full day of screenings in the vineyard for approximately 100 workers.
