THE STORY:

I am attempting to raise $500, in less than a week, to support the Children's Bureau of Southern California as part of the Disneyland 5K.  I am asking for contributions to reach my $500 goal.

Why am I doing this?

15 years ago, my wife started working in alternative education, servicing last chance high school students. Many of the students have  slipped through the cracks as a result of abuse, neglect and difficult family circumstances.  

Every night, my wife told me stories of human tragedy. Many of her students were freshly out of juvenile hall, young teen mothers in abusive relationships, victims of neglect, human trafficking, suicide attempts.

One of the common denominators of these students was some form of abuse.  I have tried to serve as a positive male role model to these students over the years.

I was planning on running the Disneyland 5k on my own as a 40th birthday challenge. I have decided to join a fundraising race team to help raise funds for the Children's Bureau, an organization that helps prevent child abuse and support children in these environments.

Will you help me reach my $500 fundraising goal? I have already committed by donating $100, the cost of a normal registration to the 5k , plus some extra. Click on the blue DONATE button on the right.  

CHILDRENS BUREAU OF SOUTHERN

Every year over 220,000 children are abused and neglected in Los Angeles and Orange counties..and that's just what is reported. Children's Bureau works to PREVENT abuse and neglect from every happening in the first place. When that isn't possible, Children's Bureau offers treatment services, foster care, and adoption.

Thank you for joining our movement to prevent child abuse. Every cent counts!
