EVENT DATE: Apr 26, 2013
So my sister Beth and I have decided to challenge ourselves to a half marathon. The Christie Clinic Illinois Half Marathon is Saturday April 26th in Champaign, IL. Provided we don't die, we would love our race experience to benefit a charity that means something to us. 1 out of 5 women have experienced domestic violence in some way shape or form. DV has affected people who care about and we want to see those numbers go down. Help us support A Safe Place: Lake County Crisis Center. They are a local Domestic Violence agency who offers counseling for victims (adults and children), perpetrators, emergency shelter services for victims, transitional and permanent housing for victims and children and prevention education.
We plan on running together, side by side.
However, as we are sisters and competetive by nature, I would like to raise more than my sister.
