A Life Worth Running
Organized by: Leigh Michaelson
I am raising money to start a the process of my lifelong dream; a non profit for suicide awareness and prevention. Through running I have found peace and comrade and have witnessed the great benefits physically and spiritually with running/walking events for a specific cause.
My ultimate goal is to have a 501 3c non profit named ," A Life Worth Running." With this organization I will put on at least three running events a year to raise money for increased suicide/depression awareness in schools to start with... It would be my life dream to help at least one person in life who is suffering this utterly devastating disease. I do not want another person to go through life knowing the total pain and devastation this disease causes!
After the first year I would like to expand the events and the support. I would like to have a web page that offers interactional support, event training tools as well as a memorial wall for lost loved ones with their personal stories.
My first step is running the River City Run 5K May 11th in San Antonio, Texas. From there...the sky is the limit
