HI! I'm running my first half marathon EVER!
Anyone who's been in touch with me in the last year has known that I've been heavily involved in volunteering (working with homeless youth, crisis and suicide prevention counseling, public outreach into schools and talking with youth about LGBTQ issues, depression and suicide) within the New York community AND anyone who's seen my Facebook page knows that I've been running like a crazy person around Central Park. SO - I just put two and two together and now I'm running the NY Half Marathon on behalf of The Trevor Project.
In case you've never heard of The Trevor Project before and aren't familiar with the amazing work that this non-profit does check out the website:
Also, if didn't see the special on Larry King Live about bullying and the recent teenage suicides, here's that episode on youtube (the whole show in 3 parts) -
I've got to raise $1500 by March 20. Obviously, if I can raise more, I'd be super excited!
WANNA HELP SUPPORT ME? I could use a little help :)
