BENEFITING: NEW ENGLAND INNOCENCE PROJECT
ORGANIZER: NEW ENGLAND INNOCENCE PROJECT
EVENT DATE: May 31, 2016
Running for Innocence Kids is a branch of Running for Innocence, a charity running team created to raise money for the New England Innocence Project and to raise awareness about the clients of the New England Innocence Project, people who have been wrongfully convicted and maintain their innocence. Running for Innocence Kids was started by us, three kids in sixth grade! This year we learned and studied about the civil rights movement with our social studies teacher. After learning about how big of an issue civil and human rights still is today, we wanted to do something to make difference. So we decided that we would work with Running for Innocence and run together and with our friends for one of the biggest civil rights issues today: wrongful convictions based on race. We are proud to know that we, as kids can make a difference in the civil/human rights movement today. Please help us make a difference by making a donation!
