BENEFITING: Prevent Child Abuse New York, Inc.
On 8/21 I will be running a half marathon at the inaugural Turning Stone Races in Verona, NY. Last year at this time I could barely run for 3 minutes at a time, but recently I ran the Boilermaker 15K and something made me believe I could do this. Since running has been so positive for me I'd like to do something positive for others--because if you're not giving back no one will like you, right?
Any way, I'm hoping that my friends and family will support my cause--standing up for children and families when they need it the most.
I'm asking people to donate $13.10...one dollar for each mile I will be running...to Prevent Child Abuse New York .
Prevent Child Abuse New York provides leadership and works with state and local officials to develop laws and programs that protect children.
They also partner with dozens of organizations across the state to train thousands of volunteers and professionals to support parents and families. And help people find parenting courses, support groups, medical and legal aid and abuse treatment.
