THE STORY:

 

On October 15, I will be running the 5K in the Baltimore Running Festival in support of the One Love Foundation.

This is truly an inspiring and engaging organization aimed at ending relationship violence across the country. Help spread the word!

 

The One Love Foundation in honor of Yeardley Reynolds Love was created in 2010 to honor the memory of Yeardley Love, a UVA senior who was beaten to death by her ex-boyfriend just weeks short of graduation. The Foundation is more popularly known as One Love, with “One” representing the number that Yeardley wore on her jersey during her high school and college lacrosse career.

After her death, Yeardley’s family and friends were surprised to learn the statistics – that 1 in 3 women in this country will be in a violent relationship during her lifetime – and grew increasingly aware that young people in particular did not seem to realize they, as a group, were at greatest risk.

Today, One Love's goal is to end relationship violence by engaging young people in a movement for change.  We develop compelling educational content that sparks new and novel discussions among workshop participants, inspiring them to work together to affect change in their communities. Our primary focus is on campus strategies for engaging kids on this issue – using our powerful film workshop, Escalation, as the spark for engagement (see video that Katie Couric did in May). At every step, we empower young people as the critical leaders of this movement, uniquely suited to mobilize a generation towards a brighter future where relationship violence is far less prevalent.  We currently are working with 200 colleges and 95 high schools across the country and want to continue building off this momentum.

The Baltimore Running Festival will raise awareness and funds to help One Love expand our presence nationally. We hope you will join the One Love team by running in the Baltimore Marathon, Half Marathon, Team Relay, or 5K. Non-runners can also support One Love by fundraising and volunteering on race day.
