On October 29, 1983 at the age of 10 my brother, David Christopher Leon went to a carnival where he was abducted & sexually assaulted. His ordeal lasted hours and the scars remain a lifetime for our family. I often wish I had been there the moment he was placed into his abductor’s car & imagine myself screaming the words to David, "Run Baby Run!!!", dreaming of a different outcome that night. David was robbed of his childhood & his innocence. From that moment forward he would never be the same. David passed away in 2004 from the wounds to his spirit, his heart & his mind from his abduction. It has become my family's wish that his lifelong suffering would not be in vain. On November 4, 2012 I will be part of team “Run Baby Run” in the NYC ING marathon. Although this marathon/fundraiser cannot change the past, it can help change another child's future by bringing awareness and education for prevention. I have a personal goal of $2,500 to reach & I cannot do it without your help! Can I count on you? Please help make a difference! Thank you & God bless!
