BENEFITING: SANDY HOOK PROMISE FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: SANDY HOOK PROMISE FOUNDATION
Sandy Hook Promise programs are the best way I know, as a mom & a teacher, to prevent the kind of social isolation and despair that leads kids to violence. In 2016, I became a Sandy Hook Promise Leader, and thanks to the compassionate and resourceful folks who began this non-profit, thousands of children are now benefiting from Knowing the Signs before it's too late, and they also know that Starting With Hello is a better alternative to bullying. I didn't pursue the marathon; this cause is what drove me to apply to the Sandy Hook Promise team when I received their gracious invitation to run last May!
