BENEFITING: Outright Vermont
ORGANIZER: Outright Vermont
EVENT DATE: May 26, 2013
This is the third year I have run in the Vermont City Marathon for Team Outright. Every year I train to run a leg, and also work to raise money for the powerful work of Outright. I know I have asked for money before--I do several fundraisers a year for Outright. But you know what? They still need the money. They still do life-changing work, every single day. And so fundraising isn't a one-shot deal, and I am back for another year to train, run, and do my best to get a buncha friends to support me in supporting Outright Vermont.
Thanks. Your support and encouragement means so much to me.
Here's more about Outright:
The Mission of Outright is to build safe, healthy, and supportive environments for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning youth (ages 13-22). Their goal is to make Vermont the safest, most supportive and empowering state for queer youth in the United States of America.
Outright’s organizing strategy is based on a youth empowerment, social change model that tells us that youth power is an essential element in the fight for equal rights. They describe youth empowerment in two parts – providing the safe space and resources so that youth can do the heavy lifting themselves and adjusting the fundamental power dynamics so that their hard work can achieves results.
Thank you for your support!
