Charlene's Run to Empower Women

BENEFITING: Empowered Women International

EVENT: Marine Corps Marathon 2013

EVENT DATE: Oct 27, 2013

THE STORY:

I am living proof that, if you set goals for yourself and you make an effort to move even one inch in that direction every day, you can achieve the impossible. On October 27, 2013, I will run the Marine Corps Marathon for the second time. I ran the marathon in 2002 and didn't think I could do it then. I said I would do it again on the 10th anniversary which was ambitious since I would be 10 years older and had actually stopped running after I completed the race in 2002.

When 2012 rolled around I decided to go ahead and do what I said I would do. Unfortunately or fortunately as it turns out, I sprained my ankle and couldn't train. It was around that time in 2012 that I became a mentor with Empowered Women International, www.ewint.org, a wonderful organization that supports women’s independence through entrepreneurship and business training. I found women there that I could mentor and encourage, and who inspired me.

Now, my objective is not just running the race to achieve my personal goal, but running it for a purpose bigger than myself...to support other women who may lack the opportunity but who have the need, talent and desire to start their own businesses.

Please contribute generosily and help me reach my goal. Together we make this run count not only for me, but for a greater purpose - to empower and transform the lives and livelihoods of many immigrant and low-income women and families. 

Peace and blessings,
Charlene
