BENEFITING: SANDY HOOK PROMISE FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: SANDY HOOK PROMISE FOUNDATION
I signed up for the 2017 TCS New York City Marathon. During my training for the 2017 New York City Marathon i injured my right knee and found out that I have a meniscus tear. I am currently getting treatment but I am working hard to get back on the road to run, jog and walk this marathon. But more importantly, I’m going to leverage all of that training and hard work to help raise money for Sandy Hook Promise.
Know that with every dollar you help me raise and every step I run, jog or walk together we are helping protect more children from gun violence. I'm reaching out to everyone I know to help me raise $3,000.00 for this cause.
Any amount you can give is so appreciated. Just click here [https://www.crowdrise.com/dashboard/johnsmith234/sandy-hook-promise-foundation/ to check out my fundraiser and click the big donate button. Please give what you can to help such an important cause.
Here's some information on Sandy Hook Promise: About Sandy Hook Promise Sandy Hook Promise (SHP) is a national, nonprofit organization based in Newtown, Connecticut. They are led by several family members whose loved ones were killed in the tragic mass shooting at Sandy Hook School on December 14, 2012. Sandy Hook Promise is focused on preventing gun violence (and other forms of violence and victimization) 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. SHP is a moderate, above-the-politics organization that supports sensible non-policy and policy solutions that protect children and prevent gun violence. Our intent is to honor all victims of gun violence by turning our tragedy into a moment of transformation. For more information visit www.sandyhookpromise.org. Since its inception, Sandy Hook Promise has educated over 1.9 million youths and adults with its Know The Signs Programs on mental health & wellness, identification of at-risk behaviors and how to take action and get help before a situation escalates. Those trained are now able to spread SHP’s vital messages and help prevent gun violence BEFORE it happens.
Thanks so much for your support.
