BENEFITING: THE CATHERINE FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Nov 29, 2014
I will be running 10 miles on my birthday to raise money ($42.42 for my age) for the mothers and children who receive free services from the Catherine Foundation in Waldorf.
This is important to me since I found out I was pregnant with Gabi at a pregnancy crisis center and received baby items and support from the one in Forestville.
I decided to volunteer at the Catherine Foundation in 2004 as a way to give back to these wonderful non-profits. In 2011, I finally went to receive abortion counselling to free myself of the guilt and shame I carried for so many years. Every chance I get, I try to give back to the Catherine Foundation whether its through money, food, clothing for the children or time.
Won't you join me in walking/running any mileage on my birthday, Nov. 29th as well as give a small donation to the least fortunate of our local sisters and their children. I was one of them at 19 years old; scared and alone.
