Welcome to my fundraising page for Team CATS for the LA Marathon 2013, the place where YOU can help make the difference!
So here's my story:
Since learning about The Center for Assault Treatment Services (CATS) in 2011, and completing my first CATS 10k in April 2011, I continue on a passionate journey to explore the world of running, hiking, and simply, enjoying the outdoors! As a full-time graduate student, studying, working, and balancing everything else in between, running has truly become a way for me to relax, re-collect before/after a long day, and get a great workout at the same time!
Since my first race, I continue motivated to run longer and run smarter. As I gradually develop as a runner, I realize more and more that ANYTHING is possible with dedication, hard work, and a positive, kick-butt attitude ;) And that is why I decided to run the LA Marathon for a cause that I care so much about!
As I continue to develop as a professional in the field of Public Health, I recognize the dire need and importance of raising awareness on an issue like violence and sexual abuse. Having had the opportunity to tour the CATS facility in Van Nuys and realizing just how much goes into developing the warm and caring atmosphere that this facility provides, made me even more committed to help. Even more amazing is the fact that CATS provides their services at no cost at all to the victim, while operating solely on donations from the community.
I have set my mind, body, and running soul to cross not one, but TWO finish lines this year! The 1st) Raise $500 to help CATS continue their mission to break the silence and stop the abuse The 2nd) At the Santa Monica Pier on March 17th, 2013 ;-) I hope you can join me in supporting this amazing cause!
As individuals we are a movement, but together we become a FORCE to help put an end to sexual assault and domestic violence! Your support will go a VERY, VERY, VERY long way! Every dollar counts! Thank you so much for your time and support!!
See you at the finish line! :)
