EVENT DATE: Feb 17, 2013
I am running the Austin Livestrong Marathon this Sunday, February 17th. I have chosen to use this experience of training and running a marathon to raise support for a nonprofit organization that is near to my heart. Growing Roots is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that was founded by my dear friend, Maria P. Hernandez. Growing Roots' mission is to empower families by providing classes and support groups that inform, connect, and support parents of children with special needs. Over the past year, I have been blessed to act as the coordinator for their annual fundraiser as well as assist in writing the curriculum for the autism class. This organization is bridging cultural and language differences as well as supporting some of the most vulnerable families in our community. I hope you can join me in supporting Growing Roots and give to bless the lives of others. Check out the webiste here: http://growingrootsaustin.com/.
