This is an amazing organization that offers a hand to those who wouldn't otherwise know where to go.
Here's what their website says:
The Boys Town National Hotline is a toll free number available to kids, teens and young adults at anytime. Please contact us if you're depressed, contemplating suicide, being physically or sexually abused, on the run, addicted, threatened by gang violence, fighting with a friend or parent, or if you are faced with an overwhelming challenge.
So, my challenge is becoming your challenge! These kids should have a place to run to to learn how to handle their own situations. That means I'm running for them.
For every $20 I raise, I will run a mile in preparation for a half marathon in July. Even if you can only donate $10, that at least buys a half mile! So keep adding to the total! The miles I run will be a part of my training as well as the half marathon itself. For any donations made between June 16th and July 16th (My birthday) I will double the miles run (meaning $10 can buy 1 mile!)
I promise to run enough miles before (and including the day of) the marathon for the goal amount. Anything over the goal amount will be finished within a reasonable amount of time (averaging 10-20 miles a week).
