In celebration of turning 30 and honoring that every day of life is a new gift to celebrate, I want to dedicate my first half marathon race to a local cause, One Love Foundation. In 2010 Yeadley Love died at the hands of her boyfriend, I did not know her but this story was made an impression on me being the same age and also graduating from college that same year. It is incredibly sad to know of a life lost too soon. Knowing that she was a dedicated athelete and positive friend it can only be imagined what kind of positive impact she would have made on the world. Out of a tragic situation has come the One Love Foundation that spreads awareness of releationshop abuse and promotes positive relationships in high schools and colleges nationally. My goal is to raise $500.
