BENEFITING: Human Rights Campaign NYC Marathon Team
ORGANIZER: Human Rights Campaign NYC Marathon Team
EVENT DATE: Nov 01, 2015
Three years ago, for shits and giggles, I trained 18 weeks for the 2012 NYC marathon, which was subsequently cancelled in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. While I did not have the opportunity to complete the race, I did raise over $3,000 for the New York Asian Women's Center to benefit minority women and children who are victims of domestic violence. I have so many of you to thank for that!
This year, after settling into a new job in the Bay Area, I've decided it's finally time to get off my lazy ass and finish what I started. I'm thrilled to have been offered a spot in the team for the Human Rights Campaign and I've committed to raising $5,000 this time around.
I'm incredibly excited and humbled to be training on behalf of this organization working to advance the rights of LGBT communities. More to come!
