THE STORY:

Hi Everyone! Once again, I am thrilled to have been invited to run the 2017 New York City Marathon on behalf of Sandy Hook Promise Foundation. Our collective fundraising efforts in 2016 yielded over $9000 for Sandy Hook Promise Foundation. I am incredibly grateful for all of your words of encouragement supporting last year's run and the sacrifices made for donations to support Sandy Hook Promise Foundation. Many of you know Sandy Hook Promise is a special and important organization to me. On Sunday, November 5th, 2017 I will have another opportunity to honor the 26 lives lost in the halls of Sandy Hook Elementary in an effort to help drive the mission of Sandy Hook Promise even further toward preventing more tragedies from gun violence. As you know, on December 12, 2014 our nation was painfully reminded how gun violence and the mental health pervades all communities, large or small, and throughout rural to urban settings and all of those in-between. It is a volatile, unpredictable epidemic that does not discriminate or exclude any demographic. With support of our donations, Sandy Hook Promise has certainly seen it's share of success along the way. One of the most remarkable successes came from the 2016 release of the Sandy Hook PSA, "Evan." Check it out here: https://youtu.be/A8syQeFtBKc The PSA has won accolades in the Advertising industry but has also helped make the Sandy Hook mission more tangible. Donations from supporters like us make these campaigns and other initiatives happen. Sandy Hook Promise also launched two other awareness campaigns this past year that intended to engage and educate children, parents, teachers and school administrators at all levels with "Start with Hello" and "Say Something" school based programs. All of these initiatives help make folks like you and me more educated and aware of the challenges so we can help Sandy Hook Promise fight the legislative battles in Washington and elsewhere. My goal for this year's 2017 NYC Marathon Campaign is $4,000 which will be accomplished through donations, corporate matching (!!) and other small events aimed at creating some family fun and drive awareness of Sandy Hook Promise. I look forward to sharing updates about programs/events for the 2nd year of my journey with Sandy Hook Promise. Thank you once again for all of your support of me and Sandy Hook Promise! Love, Brenda
