Michelle San Antonio's Fundraiser:

Sandy Hook 5K

I'll be participating in the Sandy Hook Run for the Families on March 23rd. As I'm currently in training for the Boston Marathon, I'm scheduled to run 20 miles that day, so I'll be waking up before dawn, driving to CT, running 17 miles on my own, and then joining the 5K for the final 3. The 20 miles I run that day will be in memory of the 20 children whose lives were lost on December 14. And when I run 26 miles in Boston in April, I'll run each of those miles in honor of the 26 lives lost.

As a mom of three young boys, this tragedy hit very close to home, and I've struggled with finding a way to feel like I'm doing something to help, but no matter what idea I come up with, it doesn't seem like enough. I don't know that anything ever will.

But this is at least a start, and I'm glad to have found at least some way to contribute. I would truly appreciate any donation you're able to give. Thank you.


The SANDY HOOK RUN FOR THE FAMILIES is not about running. It is about life: honoring the memory of precious lives lost through tragedy and celebrating the gift of life. It is about uniting in hope for the future.

Your donation goes to THE SANDY HOOK SCHOOL SUPPORT FUND, administered by the United Way of Western Connecticut in partnership with Newtown Savings Bank. A local board of Newtown community leaders is being convened to determine how the fund is most needed and will be best utilized. The United Way and Newtown Savings Bank have waived all administration fees to the fund.

The Hartford Marathon Foundation has donated all services to plan and conduct the event. There will be out-of-pocket costs. If you would like to contribute to help defray the cost of the event, please contact Beth Shluger, Race Director, at
