Lissa Lee's Fundraiser:

Lissa's 5K for Sandy Hook

THE STORY:

I've talked about running for years. My obsession with starting -- and failing -- the Couch-to-5K running program has hooked several friends on running, and failed to jump start me. But when my dearest friend Clay -- a teacher at an elementary school just down the street from Sandy Hook elementary -- told me about the Run for the Families of Sandy Hook, I signed up without asking any questions except "what's the team name"?

This Saturday, I'll be in Hartford, CT, with 15,000 other people. Some are hard core runners. Others run regularly but aren't generally competitive. Some are power walkers. And I've been assured that there are others, like me, who don't actually know the first thing about running but are joining in on this day to show support to the Sandy Hook community.

I don't think that a run can lessen the pain and agony that the members of this community will continue to face every minute of every day for years to come. But I know that showing up on a chilly morning to stand, and run, and maybe stumble with my friends is one more act of solidarity, one more hand grasped in the darkness.

You, too, can be a helping hand. Make as generous a gift as you can to the SANDY HOOK SCHOOL SUPPORT FUND. I trust the United Way of Connecticut to manage these funds to ensure the greatest possible healing for our friends and neighbors -- and hope you will, too.

With love,
Lissa
