BENEFITING: SANDY HOOK PROMISE FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: SANDY HOOK PROMISE FOUNDATION
I am so honored to be supporting Sandy Hook Promise in the New York City Marathon.
Their mission is to prevent gun-related deaths due to crime, suicide and accidental discharge so that no other parent experiences the senseless, horrific loss of their child. It was at a march in DC for gun safety right after the Sandy Hook Massacre, when I saw a group of First Responders from Sandy Hook holding each other and sobbing with despair. Their haunted eyes are seared in my memory forever. Seeing them that day irreversably changed me ; I run this race for them and for all people affected needlessly by gun violence.
So thank you for supporting me if you can. With your action, you are helping to ensure that another person doesn't experience a devastating loss that is so entirely preventable. And if a financial donation is not feasible for you, no worries! But please help spread the word about this campaign and, more importantly, about Gun Safety!
