Dear Friends and Family,
On April 16, 2012, I will run 26.2 miles to help Casa Myrna deliver solutions to end domestic and dating violence.
Those of you who know me may ask, "But Amy, why? Haven't you already run a marathon?" Yes, friends, I ran the Philadelphia Marathon in 2009, but that was for myself.
This is a differently story entirely. This time, I will run in my new hometown of Boston for the families affected by domestic and dating violence. I will run 26.2 miles for Gaby, for Daisean, for Roberto, for all those who are struggling to leave, for all those who have made courageous life-changes with the help of Casa Myrna.
Your support (and my feet) will help Casa Myrna continue to provide emergency shelter services, a 24-hour hotline, wide-spread multi-lingual public service announcements, and other preventive education for famillies in the Boston area.
Running 26.2 miles is one of the biggest mental and physical challenges I've ever faced. I know it will take dedication, training, and time. Those things I can provide. But I cannot do this all on my own - to be successful in the Casa Myrna Marathon Fundraising Challenge, I need your support. Please consider donating to Casa Myrna - any amount, no matter how small, will be invaluable.
Thank you in advance for your generous support.
