BENEFITING: United Way of Western Connecticut Inc.
EVENT DATE: Mar 23, 2013
As many of you know, I live in Newtown. On 12/14/12 my town experienced an unthinkable tragedy but luckily my children were not impacted. There are a lot of people in my town who are still struggling and I want to try to help them as much as I can. I've decided to participate in the "Sandy Hook Run for the Families" 5K in Hartford on March 23. I've never participated in anything like this and I don't think I've ever run more than a mile at a time. But I feel like this is the least I can do to show my support for my town.
I have set up a fundraiser website with the goal of raising $1,000 for the families, staff of SHS and the first responders. Anything you can contribute would be greatly appreciated. If you would also like to participate in the 5K, you can sign up at http://www.hartfordmarathon.com/Events/Sandy_Hook_Run_for_the_Families.htm.
