THE STORY:

I'm running in the Boston Marathon to raise awareness and money to help support The Theater Offensive's ground-breaking, life-changing, and often times, life-saving program, True Colors OUT Youth Theater.

My choice to run for True Colors was easy. You see, True Colors transform real-life stories of LGBT youth into powerful performances to fight bigotry, hate, and discrimination. My running is by no way as challenging as the issues our youth face today.

The youth personal stories are based on their experiences, including: bullying, homelessness, harassment, discrimination, and suicide.

Throughout the program, youth will receive high quality theater training, leadership development, and performance opportunities across the greater Boston area. Youth directly participating in the program report the following risk factors:

  • 54% live in economically depressed urban areas
  • 30% report living in neighborhoods facing violence
  • 40% identify as low income
  • 53% report a history of family abuse

My goal is to raise $5,000. No amount is too little. But, if you need inspiration, then please consider making a donation at one of the following levels:

  • $26: A dollar for every mile in the marathon
  • $42: A dollar for every kilometer in the marathon
  • $75: The amount I hope many of you will give
  • $110: A dollar for every percent I'll be giving on race day
  • $240: A dollar for every minute I'll be running on race day
  • $500: A dollar for every mile I'll run in my training for the big day – the distance between Boston and NYC is 190 miles. The amount I’ll be training is equivalent to running/driving back and forth 2.63 times.
  • $__ Any other amount you'd like!

Now finishing its 24th year, TTO's programming is designed to prioritize the self-identified needs of low-income residents of color, reflect the diversity of the neighborhoods, and give voice to underserved LGBT members of Boston’s many communities.

The Theater Offensive is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
