Hey guys! I know it stinks when people ask for money, but....it's for a good cause! Witness is a fantastic non-profit organization that is working very hard...and for us to boot! (They bring light to Human Rights violations through video!) I would like to give back to them, and what better way to do it than with the Brooklyn Half! It will be my last race in NY for a while...I have to pull on my cowboy boots and start training in Texas! I appreciate everyone's time and effort! Thank you!

Join Team WITNESS on May 19th, 2012 in its first year running the sold out NYRR Brooklyn Half Marathon! Each member of the team will have a personal fundraising page on this site to raise support and awareness for WITNESS.
Every contribution matters – make a gift to Team WITNESS today!
Co-founded by musician and activist Peter Gabriel in 1992, WITNESS uses video to open the eyes of the world to human rights violations. WITNESS partners with organizations around the world to bring the power of video into their existing campaigns and advance human rights causes. Videos from these collaborations have helped shed light on the systemic repression of ethnic minorities in Burma, persecute recruiters of child soldiers in the Democratic Republic of Congo and pass the first law protecting elders from abuse in the US.
