BENEFITING: DENVER CHILDRENS ADVOCACY CENTER
EVENT DATE: May 18, 2014
I'm running my very first marathon in support of Denver Children's Advocacy Center, where they served over 2,700 abused and neglected children in 2013. Programs at the Center include Assessment and Treatment, Prevention, Forensic Interviewing, and Community Education - and this year, their new Medical Center will be accepting children for post-abuse medical exams. The mission focuses on healing the whole family to ensure that abuse can NEVER re-occur. Help me support this amazing cause, and check them out at http://www.denvercac.org or http://facebook.com/DCAC01 for more info!
I'm running the full marathon for a few reasons: to encourage our athletes and potential athletes; to be a healthy example for my younger sister; to try to raise $1k for the amazing kids we serve at DCAC; and to show that fitness has nothing to do with your past, only your future.
I'll be posting updates as I run along, and I'm open to running groups and any first-time-marathoner suggestions you may have. Thanks for the love! <3
