BENEFITING: SANDY HOOK PROMISE FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: SANDY HOOK PROMISE FOUNDATION
I am a teacher, writer, mother, wife, and Sandy Hook Promise Leader. I've written & performed puppet shows that teach inclusion and prevent bullying from happening. I've brought Sandy Hook Promise gun violence prevention programs to 2,000 kids in my town. I've never trained for a marathon before, but I'm passionate about Sandy Hook Promise! That is what motivated me to accept a place on the SHP Team. I love life and I feel a lot of passion for teaching kindness before kids grow up into bullies. This fall, I am teaching an improv theater class for kids to teach empathy, inspired by Sandy Hook Promise's Start With Hello program. Every dollar you donate helps prevent a violent school incident. Because every dollar goes to trainers that Sandy Hook Promise sends to your school to do a free program like "Start With Hello" week or "Say Something." Thank you for supporting my marathon. I'm lucky to be running for the Sandy Hook Promise Team!
