This will be my first full marathon and I wanted it to be more than just a herculean feat never attempted by another human*. *This statement may, or may not be true. It’s not.
I’ll be running 26.2 miles (that’s 42.16 kilometers for my Canadian peeps), from Dodgers Stadium downtown, to the Santa Monica Pier! That’s like a 17-hour drive (one hour without traffic).
Point being, it’s a big deal to me, but an even bigger deal because I’m running it to raise money for an amazing non-profit organization called Saving Innocence (www.savinginnocence.com). Saving Innocence's mission is to rescue and restore child victims of sex trafficking. If you have a child, know a child, or ever were a child yourself, then read on.
In the US, between 100,000-300,000 children are sold into the sex trade each year.
The average age: 12.
