BENEFITING: MEXICAN AMERICAN LEGAL DEFENSE AND EDUCATIONAL FUND

EVENT DATE: Jan 21, 2017

THE STORY:

As you know, our abuelita passed away this summer.  Our grandma's passing was heartbreaking and left our entire family bereft. We miss her very, very much. 

Since her passing, Anna and I have been trying to refocus, recenter.  After much deliberation, we concluded that we needed to channel our efforts towards a good cause.  Thus, we've decided to run the inaugural Pasadena half-marathon in my abuelita's honor.  Anna and I also wanted to take the opportunity to fund raise for an organization that was very dear to my abeulita's (and our entire family's) heart: The Mexican American Legal Defense & Educational Fund ("MALDEF").  MALDEF is a venerable civil rights organization whose voice is critically needed as attacks on the civil rights and liberties of Latinos increase under the new administration. I do not think it is a coincidence that the half-marathon will take place on the same weekend as the upcoming inauguration. 

That said, please consider supporting us in our efforts.
