THE STORY:

On Sunday, November 6, I'll join over 50,000 people to run the five boroughs in the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon. I'll be running for American Jewish World Service (AJWS), an organization I not only work for but am deeply committed to in its mission of realizing human rights throughout the Global South.

AJWS supports grassroots organizations in Africa, Asia and Latin America fighting for their communities’ own visions for social change. They are empowering women, girls and LGBT people; stopping violence, prejudice and discrimination; and enabling rural and indigenous people to protect the land and resources that they depend on for survival.

On November 6th, I will run for them.

I will run for Leymah Roberta Ghowee, director of AJWS partner Women Peace and Security Network-Africa (WIPSEN), who was awarded the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of the pivotal role that she played in bringing an end to Liberia's devastating 14-year civil war.

I will run for Ikal Angelei, director of AJWS grantee Friends of Lake Turkana, who won the 2012 Goldman Environmental Prize for risking her life fighting the construction of the destructive Gabe 3 Dam in Kenya. 

And I will run for Berta Caceras, late director of AJWS partner Consejo Cívico de Organizaciones Populares e Indígenas de Honduras (COPINH), who in March was mercilessly assasinated for her leadership fighting for indigenous rights in Honduras. 

Their struggle is our struggle. On November 6th, I will honor their tireless efforts by testing the limits of my own endurance. If I can run 26.2 miles, I believe you, my family and friends, can help me raise $3,000 to ensure that these groups, and others like them, continue to better the world in which we live.
