BENEFITING: Human Rights Campaign NYC Marathon Team
ORGANIZER: Human Rights Campaign NYC Marathon Team
I am thrilled and overwhelmed at the opportunity to run my first marathon for the Human Rights Campaign - it still hasn't sunk in! I can't wait to share my experience with you all.
This foundation has paved the way for so many individuals to have a voice and equal opporunity in our world. My first "coming out" experience was while I was attending Simmons College. I was and continue to be privileged in the incredible support and resources that were made available to me thanks to friends, family and the inclusive environment that Simmons fosters. It's was and is not easy as discrimiation exists in many forms. I hope to raise awareness for our community and wish for a world filled with more compassion, empathy, and love for one another regardless of how we identify or who we love.
Everyone has their own story - your parents, children, friends, coworkers... We have all struggled in our own way but continue to grow stronger due to the love that surrounds us. Please help me in bringing more kindness to our days - and let's continue the fight to achieve true equality!
Every day, the Human Rights Campaign Foundation works to enhance the lived experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) people and their families by changing hearts and minds across America and around the globe.
If you believe in equality for all, join the Team to train and fundraise on the right side of history. Each dollar raised will improve the lives of LGBTQ people by working to increase understanding and encourage the adoption of LGBTQ-inclusive policies and practices. Your incredible commitment will help us as we build support for LGBTQ people among families and friends, co-workers and employers, pastors and parishioners, doctors and teachers, neighbors, and the general public.
