Hi Friends and Family!
I'm excited to annouce that I am running my first ever 1/2 marathon here in St. Louis on April 7th!! It's a little bit overwhelming to imagine running 13.1 miles in just a few weeks BUT I'm running to raise money for an amazing organization that has a special place in my heart--HavenHouse St. Louis.
I'm currently doing my practicum through the George Warren Brown School of Social Work at Washington University in St. Louis at this incredible organization in St. Louis called HavenHouse. Havenhouse provides the comfort of home and a community of support for patients and loved ones traveling to St. Louis for medical care. Working here has been such a great opportunity to meet families from all over the United States and even the world and see what it means to them to have a place like HavenHouse where they can stay at some of the most difficult moments of their lives.
It would mean so much to me, and the thousands of families staying at HavenHouse each year, to have your support. My goal is to raise $500 dollars before April 7th and I need every little bit of help to make that happen!!
