In May 2016, we are going to be running the Boston’s Run to Remember half marathon. We are starting this fundraiser for the Joyful Heart Foundation in hopes to raise money to help end and educate others about domestic violence. The Joyful Heart Foundation was started by Mariska Harghitay, who is an activist for domestic violence and sexual assault. The mission of the Joyful Heart Foundation is to heal, educate, and empower survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence and child abuse. As a victim of domestic violence and sexual assault myself, this foundation is something that gives me hope to bring this topic to justice and help other survivors heal. Any amount helps for this foundation to make changes in the future!
From running the Day One 5K in April we raised over $700 together! We want to make an even bigger impact!
