I started my 16 week training on Monday, January 9th for the Eugene Marathon which will take place on April 29th, 2 weeks before my 40th birthday. I am asking you to help with raising money for Changing the Game: The GLSEN Sports Project is an education and advocacy initiative focused on addressing LGBT issues in K-12 school-based athletic and physical education programs.
I will be running a total of 420 miles during the next 16 weeks and would like to use my training and marathon as a fundraiser for the great project. Please be creative and donate to this project by donating per mile of the training, the marathon or just a flat donation. You can also join my team and help this great cause.
The Sport Project’s mission is to assist K-12 schools in creating and maintaining an athletic and physical education climate that is based on the core principles of respect, safety and equal access for all students, teachers and coaches regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression and integrating these efforts into overall school plans to ensure a safe, respectful school climate and culture.
