BENEFITING: COMMUNITY FOOD BANK OF EASTERN OKLAHOMA
ORGANIZER: Community Food Bank of Eastern OK
I thought I was just signing up for my second half marathon but learned in the process that I could raise money for a charity to earn my entry fee, the more I thought about it the more I felt called to raise money for Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma.
Running has made a huge impact on my life and completely changed me, I have used it to grieve my the sudden loss of my Daddy, heal from a divorce, be functional through debilitating depression and more positively take time to reflect in my faith and have used it to lose 71lbs.
Being able to do what I love and raise money to help others is huge to me and I suspect connecting with charities through running will be a repeated thing for me.
My goal is to raise $400, I only need $250 for my entry and my goal time for this half marathon is 2 hrs.
Training started yesterday with a 5 mile run and back to healthy fuel for my body, today I try cross-fit for the first time, my running schedule should have me at 13 miles by early October.
Please help me support families in need by donating to Community Food Bank!
