BENEFITING: Vermont Workers' Center and Migrant Justice
ORGANIZER: Vermont Workers' Center and Migrant Justice
EVENT: Exercise Your Rights
LESS COCKTAILS MORE RUNNING!
On July 20th of 2013 we will both be racing, together, in a 10 kilometers run! That is MUCH harder then 6.21371 miles!
We both (mostly SAM) need to get in better shape and running is the best way to do it! Sam working at a pizza restaurant has not helped our elegant figures (even though he likes to say "It just means there is more of us to love")
We are getting married in a little over a year, and they say marriage is a marathon and not a sprint, what better way to get prepared then to practice that quite literally!
We are asking our loved ones to support us in this goal, all of your love and support will go directly to two organizations that we hold very close to our heart. Migrant Justice and the Vermont Workers' Center are human rights grass roots organizations that need your help in order to continue working for important causes such as Healthcare for all! Migrant Rights! Affordable Education! and many more!
This work is not easy, we are up against a lot. We work with, and often are, a community of people who are generally struggling at the hands of poverty and still finding time after work to gather together and demonstrate what democracy really looks like. We unite around our struggle for the human right to healthcare, education, immigrant rights, disability justice, a healthy environment, transportation, among other things we need to live healthy and productive lives. The struggle is a school and we are learning everyday how important the small steps we take are when they are coupled with other feet marching in the same direction. Cracking the code to revolution is going to require time, people power, music, good food, full souls, strong bodies and green-cheddar-money.
Will you take a very important step and donate $10.00 per kilometer we run?
This is our life. Support us, support these two organizations and support human rights for all!
