Running (and running . . . and running . . .) for SAVI!

THE STORY:

So last year I took on the New York City Marathon, for many reasons, not the least of which was to support a darn fine organization that gotten a significant portion of my time and my heart since I joined them in 2001. My love affair with the Sexual Assault and Violence Intervention Program at Mount Sinai Hospital has no known expiration date, but I kind of thought the marathon would be a one and done kind of thing. I was mistaken.

I decided to do it again, but I wanted to mix things up a little so I wouldn't be tempted to compare the two experiences. So I added the Chicago Marathon to the mix. Two marathons in three weeks - what's not to love about that?

I don't expect you join me on the streets of two different cities to run 52.4 miles, but I'd love you to join me in supporting the great work that SAVI does day in and day out, and indeed throughout the nights and weekends.

In their words: SAVI is dedicated to validating, healing and empowering survivors and their supporters to lead safe, healthy lives through advocacy, free and confidential counseling, and public education.

In my words: we show up to help people in their times of need, we listen, we think about what we say, we think about what we think, we work as a team, we steadfastly support our survivors and hopefully infect our friends and families and countless other people we encounter with with the knowledge and compassion we've honed as a result of being a part of this crazy family we call SAVI.

And we need all the help we can get. Because we want the world to be a better place, for all of us.

So howzabout you click a few bucks away? It'll make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside . . . .
