THE STORY:

HELP ME HELP THE MOTHERS! I am running a 10K this Mother's Day so that
300 mothers who are in a Federal Prison will get the chance to have a GOGI
Workshop with me and Coach Taylor. I need to raise $500 to pay for the
books, the hotel and the flight. As a result, more than 300 women will
get the tools they need to never, ever go back to prison when they are
released. HELP ME HELP THEM to help themselves.


When the money is raised Getting Out by Going In (GOGI) will travel up north to visit the women housed at the Federal Corrections Institute in Dublin, CA.

Over 1000 women are detained at FCI - Dublin. The Bureau of Justice states that 7 in 10 incarcerated women have minor children, and there is more than 113,000 women incarcerated nationwide. 2 million children have a parent in prison. Children with incarcerated parents are 4 times more likely to become incarcerated.

GOGI helps mothers understand what it means to make a good decision. GOGI helps women understand that they are worthy, regain their self-esteem, and regain control of their lives through learning and teaching The GOGI Tools for Positive Decision-Making. Once these women know their worth and know their GOGI Tools, they begin to teach others; and increasing numbers of GOGI mothers are being released, staying out, staying sober and reuniting with their children.

Let's hear it for the GOGI Mothers! Happy Mother's Day! AND GOGI 4 Life!
