BENEFITING: Human Rights Campaign NYC Marathon Team
ORGANIZER: Human Rights Campaign NYC Marathon Team
EVENT: Marine Corps Marathon 2015
EVENT DATE: Oct 25, 2015
I've decided to tackle a 'bucket-list' item and run a marathon while raising money for an important cause! Human Rights Campaign is an organization working towards marriage equality, ending workplace and housing discrimination and supporting students in safe school environments. I feel personally committed to this cause as a Wellness educator, from seeing how much young teens can both celebrate and struggle with gender expression, gender identity and sexual orientation. Let's help love keep winning, and continue to support equal rights for all. I've never run a marathon, but have enjoyed a half-marathon, and I'm committed to training for this! ill try to keep everyone updated on my progress, and hope to finish feeling like I could do another one someday, regardless of my time I've felt inspired this past year at my school, watching new runners push themselves to their first 5k, and students trying their best on our mile run days. I'm hoping to inspire more students to run this year, and I'm really looking forward to this marathon in Washington, D.C.. on October, 25th!
