ABOUT THE KID:
She's five and extremely concerned about the many adventures her future self will sign her up for (without her consent, of course).
If you look close enough, you can almost hear her say "PLEASE!!!!" As in, "PLEASE...
...forgive my 36-year-old-self's delusions of athleticism. She's waging a war against our knees, which I'm afraid we'll lose. Can you at least help us win the challenge to raise $1K? (click on that button that says "donate" and give now. thank you!)
...teach older-me a lesson in "gratitude" by giving her something tangible to be grateful for. I swear, FIVE BUCKS will do it. She's quite easy to please and she can say THANK YOU in more than two languages. I taught her well." (if you haven't already, click DONATE and give now. thanks!)
...just DONATE already so she can stop referring to us in the third-person. It's kinda creepy." (you know the drill: click donate and give. thanks! salamat! gracias!).
Advance thanks to all of you who'll help me reach my $1,000-fundraising goal!
ABOUT THE TEAM:
Team Worker Justice Runners is a diverse and dynamic group of runners of all levels brought together by a shared commitment to protecting and advancing workers' rights. We're a mix of novice and pro-runners, athletes and slackers, big and small, young and old, fast and slow... You get the picture. So, wherever you fall in the spectrum of runners, YOU'RE WELCOME on our team!
Together, we will train and endure the physical and mental challenge of running 13.1 MILES (or 5K for some) because we believe that everyone has the right to earn a living wage and we will go the distance to fight for that right.
We will run because we know that every mile we cross brings us closer to raising $10,000 to support Interfaith Worker Justice's efforts to stop wage theft and protect the rights of the most vulnerable workers and their families.
Together, we will cross the finish line knowing we made a difference in the lives of working families.
