BENEFITING: COMMUNITY AGAINST VIOLENCE INC
EVENT DATE: Feb 20, 2011
This fundraiser is to raise money for a very special organization in the community I live in. Community Against Violence (CAV) provides support and assistance to people who experience domestic violence and abuse. It is a well known non-profit in the Taos area, and has helped hundreds of people get back on their feet.
I am running 13.1 miles in the IMS MasterBlock Arizona Half Marathon on February 20th, 2011. Please donate to this project and help carry me over the finish line. Every mile that I run I will be thinking about all the people and especially the young children the CAV helps. Every mile that I run will be for giving back to my community.
I hope this project will help raise the money that this program needs to continue to help those in my community that need it. Thanks!
Thanks so much to all who donated to my cause. Running the Arizona Half was one of the most empowering experiences I have had in my life. It rained the entire way, making it such an amazing run. I never stopped. That last mile I kept thinking about all the children and families that endure tragedy and hardship - and it made crossing the finish line and raising the money so much more meaningful.
As for the future, I plan to keep plugging away and do a few more Halfs then it will be onto the Full Marathon... stay tuned!
