EVENT: 2012 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 16, 2012
This is my first marathon and I am honored and thrilled to be a member of the Crittenton Women's Union's (CWU) team! As a CWU Boston Marathon Team Member, I have pledged to run the Boston Marathon and raise $5,000 for CWU to help more than 1,400 women and children in the Boston area struggling with homelessness, food insecurity, unemployment, and domestic violence.
Please give to the CWU mission to help low-income women and their families build better futures for themselves and their families.
You may not know about CWU, but they provide:
· emergency shelter for homeless families
· transitional housing for domestic violence survivors
· job training
· family support services
In addition to these vital services, CWU takes a unique approach, working with each person long-term as she acquires the skills necessary to create an economically secure life.

Thank you in advance for your support!
