"Geez, Nina, I thought you were going to quit that running thing." - said no one ever.
(If they do, I defer to the wise wise words of MC Hammer).
My co-runner for this event, Diane, would never say that!
Most of you know my run-ins & on's (for 13 & 26 miles) with Washington DC's The Grassroot Project (TGP). I recently ran(a majority of!) the 2015 Marine Corps Marathon on their behalf. In 2016, I have decided to lend my charitable words, hips, adductors, and glutes to their first funder, the MTV Staying Alive Foundation (SAF).
SAF is a grantmaking organization that provides financial and capacity-building resources to youth 27 years old and younger, who are leading HIV prevention efforts for their peers in their communities. In December 2015, SAF announced the newest round of grantees as they also commemorated 10 years as a foundation. I first learned of this work in 2008 at the International AIDS Conference in Mexico City and have been following SAF ever since! Like The Grassroot Project, young people all over the world have been given the chance to change their world.
Invest in the stamina of young people to be solutions to the problems that affect them. Join Diane & I with your support, and let's stop HIV together :)
