BENEFITING: MIXED ROOTS FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Oct 02, 2011
I run, you all know this. I run a lot, and now I want to run for a cause. October 2nd, 2011 in San Jose, CA I will be participating in my first official run, the San Jose Rock n Roll Half Marathon, part of the nationwide Rock n Roll marathon series.
Running itself is great for my health, and I have been moved and motivated by everyone who says they too have begun running because of me. But there is something more I want to do.
Early this year I found my birth family, after 27 years of not knowing who they were, or even if they were alive. I am fortunate, and although I have shared my story with you and others, I want to be able to do more, reach the young generations of adoptees, and assist them in finding their voice. That is why I joined the Mixed Roots foundation, and am an official chair member.
Mixed Roots Foundation is focused on assisting multi-ethnic adoptees become familiar with their , Identity. Diversity. Unity . http://www.mixedrootsfoundation.org/
Upon receipt of donations, I will also be submitting my total donation amount to my employer for 100% donation matching, through the GAP Giving program. That's right, my total will be MATCH 100% by GAP!
I thank you for your consideration to donate, and of course any increment of money is helpful.
Thank you, and I hope to see you at the San Jose Rock n Roll half marathon, October 2nd, 2011.
