BENEFITING: One Love Foundation in honor of Yeardley Love
EVENT DATE: Apr 01, 2017
On April 1st, I am running the Charlottesville 8K to raise money for One Love Foundation.
This year, being in graduate school at the University of Virginia has got me thinking about Yeardley a lot. I first heard her story on the news years ago, but I really got to know the foundation created in honor of her just last year. While at SMU, I was given the opportunity to be part of Not On My Campus: one of the first nationwide campus groups aiming to end the silence surrounding sexual assault. Being a Resident Assistant and a member of a sorority has allowed me to understand the prevalence of sexual assault on college campuses.
I've seen first hand the important work this foundation does. It is the goal of the One Love to honor Yeardley Love by bringing an end to Relationship Violence by educating, empowering and activating campus communities in a movement for change. Please help me raise money for this important cause.
