BENEFITING: SANDY HOOK PROMISE FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: SANDY HOOK PROMISE FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
Off and running! I am very proud to be associated with the Sandy Hook Promise Team to run the TCS NYC Marathon in November. In helping communities to reduce gun violence, The Sandy Hook Promise Foundation is training educators, students, families to recognize signs of mental illness and to say something if they see something.
My goal is to raise funds to support this important work. The twenty six miles will, I hope, honor the 20 children aged between 6 and 7 years old and the six brave adult staff members who were fatally shot Dec 14th 2012.
It is my hope that the final 0.2 miles will honor first responsers and eveyrone who will take or have taken the Sandy Hook Promise: "to do all we can to protect children from gun violence by encouraging and supporting solutions that create safer, healthier homes, schools and communities".
