BENEFITING: Mountain 2 Mountain
EVENT DATE: Feb 17, 2013
Mileage Tracker: 181
I'm running the Austin Half Marathon again on February 17, 2013. Not only am I going to try to beat my time (a pathetic 2:40) from 2011, but I am going to raise money for the organization closest to my heart: Mountain2Mountain. I could go on for pages about the amazing work done by M2M's founder, Shannon Galpin. Inspiring is an understatement for how I feel about her work in Afghanistan with women and girls and now M2M is beginning to develop bike camps and programs for human trafficking and rape survivors right here in the USA and Colorado. The fundraising goal I've set for this race is higher than any I've ever attempted before, but M2M is an entirely grassroots organization that literally makes every penny count. Please give what you can, even if it's only a $1. Thank you so much for your support!
