BENEFITING: SANDY HOOK PROMISE FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: SANDY HOOK PROMISE FOUNDATION
Led by some of the families whose loved ones were killed in the tragic mass shooting at Sandy Hook School in Newtown, CT, on 12/14/12, SHP is dedicated to preventing gun violence BEFORE it happens by educating and mobilizing parents, schools,and communities on mental health and wellness programs that identify, intervene, and help at-risk individuals.
This is a moderate, non-political organization aimed at protecting adolescents from gun violence.
After years of hemming and hawing about whether the marathon distance was a race to which I really wanted to commit, running 9 primarily "off the couch" half marathons and various shorter distances requiring little structured training, and in the run up to my 38th birthday, I have decided to commit to this cause, this organization, this team, and this race and finally put a marathon in the books.
Please support me and support Sandy Hook Promise by donating whatever you are comfortable with! Thank you:)
