BENEFITING: Sanctuary for Families
ORGANIZER: Sanctuary for Families
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
I am running my FIRST EVER marathon in support of Sanctuary for Families, an organization that does so much for New York City's women and children. Please help me get all the way from Staten Island to mile 26 in Central Park!
Sanctuary for Families is dedicated to the safety, healing and self-determination of victims of domestic violence and related forms of gender violence. Through comprehensive services for women and their children, and through outreach, education and advocacy, it strives to create a world in which freedom from gender violence is a basic human right. For more information on their work, go to https://www.sanctuaryforfamilies.org/.
One of the things that has gotten me this far in my running journey has been my amazing running group, which we call the Grand Army Pacers. You can find us on instagram at @grandarmypacers, where much of our marathon training is being documented - please check it out and follow us on our journey!
