Run for Healing is a 267 mile run from Albuquerque to the Mexican border at Santa Teresa, NM, a project led by COMMONSENSEnm and Public Allies NM. The run begins on May 28th and ends June 11th. This event is to raise awareness of the violence that our communities are saturated with; as part of a grassroots movement that hopes to curb this tide of violence against youth. I am intimately aware of this violence as I am sure many of you also are.
I am running 60 miles and want to raise $10/mile, for a total of $600. Donations for this event will fund a youth-led violence prevention roundtable and provide small grants to communities in New Mexico to develop violence prevention initiatives/programs.
Please support us in our efforts against violence as we Run For Healing, run for hope, and run for the future of our youth!
