BENEFITING: WOMEN FOR WOMEN INTERNATIONAL
EVENT DATE: Oct 09, 2013
I know there is constant violence in some places of the world (and bombs go off daily), but the tragic events of the Boston marathon really touched me. To many people, being able to run a marathon is a symbol of overcoming great physical and mental adversity and shows the triumph of the human spirit. And an attack on this is especially horrific. I originally signed up to run a 1/2 marthon, but I've realized I'm not a runner..I'm a yogi. So, instead I've decided to go to a challenging hot yoga class.
I am raising funds for Women for Women International: www.womenforwomeninternational.com Founded in 1993, Women for Women International helps women and chilren in war-torn regions like: Afghanistan, Iraq, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Kosovo, Nigeria, Rwanda and South Sudan, transform their lives by providing financial and emotional support, rights awareness and leadership education and job skills training.
