THE STORY:

For close to three years, I have worked for an organization named InsideOUT Writers (IOW). The organization's focus is on reducing the juvenile recidivism rate by providing a range of services that evolves to meet the needs of currently and formerly incarcerated youth and young adults. I personally work with the creative writing program inside the juvenile halls and have seen the transformation with my own eyes. It is phenomenal. Writing has been a life saving tool for me and to see youth use this tool to reflect, heal and transform has been a true blessing.

I have spent much of my time and energy working to expand these services because I truly believe in this work. There came a point late 2014 where I realized that there is more I can do to expand these efforts. In this spirit, I am honored to announce that I have joined IOW's first ever Marathon team for the 2015 ASICS Los Angeles Marathon on March 15, 2015. This is an amazing opportunity for us to spread the word about IOW and raise money for the organization.

For those of you who know me well, you know I have NEVER been a runner but I have been putting in work! Whatever you can give will be greatly appreciated :)
