EVENT: Honda LA Marathon 2012
EVENT DATE: Mar 18, 2012
Courage Campaign serves a cause near and dear to my heart. When I was flirting with the idea of a marathon I was looking for motivation and conviction. I was browsing the charities being supported at the LA Marathon and saw Courage Campaign. Seeing that I could run for a group that supports causes important to me actually helped me make my final decision to tackle the marathon.
Our team is running to help put an end to discrimination. This is the civil-rights cause of our generation, and we are running to raise money to educate the public. The Courage Campaign Institute works to use public education, strategic research and training to help create a more equal society and defend and extend human and civil rights.
As a thank you for what you are giving to me and Courage Campaign I will run at least one song in your honor during the marathon. You can dictate a song on my playlist for every $25 you donate. Any donatation up to $25 buys a song during the marathon. Donate between $26 and $50 and you can pick 2! I'll add a song for every $25 you add. Don't worry about whether or not I have the song, I will get it by marathon day. Funny or inspirational, meaningful or motivating, the song is entirely up to you. You don't have to decide on your song(s) now; you can let me know later. I just want a way to think of you and remember you on marathon day.
Update: The training is going great! Yesterday (Nov 6th) I completed my very first half marathon looking good and feeling good. That's my new picture to the left with my finisher's medal. Thank you for all of the continued support!
