EVENT DATE: Oct 05, 2014
We are a group of six San Antonio women (Alice, Bianca, Charlene, Kathy, Niki, Mobi) who have committed to run or walk a race in October to raise funds to help the refugee children from Central America who have recently crossed the Texas border seeking compassion and relief. We represent diverse racing experience -- from one signing up for her first 5K to a seasoned half-marathoner to an ultramarathoner going for her first 100 mile trail race! Funds raised will go directly to RAICES of San Antonio (Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services) who are providing desperately needed legal assistance to the refugee children here in San Antonio. Wondering about the image? It's from Alice's painting titled "We are Fearless in the Dark." We think that expresses the courage and hope of these young people.
