BENEFITING: Kids Enjoy Exercise Now
ORGANIZER: Kids Enjoy Exercise Now
EVENT: LA Marathon 2017
EVENT DATE: Mar 19, 2017
I have decided to run the LA Marathon relay (half marathon) with a friend of mine to raise money for Kids Enjoy Exercise Now (KEEN). I have been volunteering with KEEN for half a year now, which gets children with disabilities active by playing sports and interacting with others. This organization is really special to me since sports have always played such a vital role in my life, and especially the last few years dealing with all my chronic health issues. I have grown extremely close with many of the children and seeing the way they smile every time we are out on the court playing is a feeling unlike any other. Giving back to this incredible organization is the very least I can do, so please help me raise as much money as I can before Sunday, March 19. Thank you guys for all your constant support!
