BENEFITING: SANDY HOOK PROMISE FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: SANDY HOOK PROMISE FOUNDATION
In 11 days I will be running my first ever marathon and I'm honored to be doing so with the Sandy Hook Promise Team. Please help me to reach my goal to raise at least $3,000 for this vital organization - any little bit helps and anything you can give to support my goal would be greatly appreciated!
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 10 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:)
