I hope you'll support me by giving to the incredible Center Against Domestic Violence. They offer shelter, sustained counseling, financial planning and help with job skills. They do outreach to teach about healthy relationships. They help with legal resources, too!
The stats on domestic violence are not good. I know how hard it is to leave - how difficult it is to rebuild a life that seems hopeless. Running the NYC Marathon is my way to celebrate survival, and to support others who are taking their health and happiness into their own hands (and running shoes :)
Many warm thanks to family, friends, coworkers, art, my inspirational cat, my sneakers. Special thanks to CADV for their most necessary healing work!
Thank you for your generous donation and your time. See you on November 4th! Bring mittens, lunch and some snacks - I'll be waay in the back and shuffling triumphantly towards the finish line.
