EVENT: Refuse To Abuse 5K 2016
EVENT DATE: Jul 09, 2016
I know this is very short notice, for me as well, LOL. I was not sure if I was going to run the Mariners 5K for the 4th time. My father past away in late March of this year due to complications from a medical procedure that was suppose to improve his quality of life. Dad’s passing has been very difficult for me, I didn’t believe I had the energy or courage to run this year…. Then on Fathers Day when I was remembering all the amazing things my Father has done and taught me… it hit me. I started running the Mariners Refuse to Abuse 5K because of how my Dad and family were there for me when I was being abused. I cannot imagine what would have become of me and my son if I did not have my Father and my family… I have to run for all those that do not have the amazing support that I do!
I am would like to raise $2000 and complete the 5K in 40 minutes or less! I will need your support to achieve both of these goals. Money raised supports violence prevention work, including our efforts to get everyone talking about healthy relationships. Benefitting Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence (WSCADV).
