THE STORY:

I'm running the Boston Marathon to benefit Casa Myrna Vazquez.

Casa Myrna delivers solutions to end domestic and dating violence. Founded in 1977 by community activists, these solutions include:

  • Three Boston-based shelters for women and children who are homeless and in crisis due to domestic and/or family violence
  • A holistic range of bilingual English/Spanish supportive services to help women in crisis rebuild their lives, including legal advocacy, support groups, individual counseling, housing search assistance, financial literacy education and assistance with finding educational/workforce development programs
  • SafeLink (877-785-2020), the only statewide, 24/7, multilingual domestic violence hotline in Massachusetts
  • Education, outreach and public awareness campaigns on mass transit systems statewide about domestic and dating violence.

Casa Myrna helps build better futures for women and children struggling with many forms of adversity, including poverty, violence and homelessness.

DONATION: $100

I am a law professor in South Florida and the mother of a 2007 graduate of Phillips Exeter Academy. I had been thinking about ways to introduce the Harkness method where I teach, and found your excellent article in the Rutgers Law Record. I then googled you to see where you ended up, and saw you'd run the Boston Marathon this year on behalf of Casa Myrna. I teach immigration law, and have been obsessed with the stories of the two brothers, and what happened to them in their quest for the American Dream. I read your very moving account of that day, and realized that I haven't given enough thought to the victims. As someone who's been particularly committed to helping immigrant women who've survived abuse I wanted to make this donation. Thank you for your story and all your good work. 5 years ago
