Thanks for visiting my donation page. I am 8 days from completing my 16th Marathon, while raising funds for The Theater Offensive Group. Training & preparing for the marathon are not as difficult as trying to raise awareness about organization's like this one that really benefit society, and in this particular case really work with our youth.
This year I will be running for Team OUT Run in order to raise awareness and money to support The Theater Offensive's program's. One of the key factor's that attracted me to this group, is their True Colors OUT Youth Theater program, which works with at-risk LGBT youth and helps them deal with personal experiences like bullying, homelessness, harassment, discrimination and suicide by allowing them to express these life-changing and traumatic experiences through theatrical pieces. When I first read about this group, the one thought that came to mine was, "when life hands you lemons, you make lemonade..." I am glad groups such as this one exist, and encourage and promote our youth to fight through their trialsl and tribulations and turn what some might see as negative experiences, into positive teaching opportunities.
I am thrilled to be able to contribute and I thank you for your donation and support.
