I am running my first 50 miler for The Family Tree!!! The Family Tree is an incredible organization that is dedicated to improving our community by providing families with proven solutions to prevent child abuse and neglect. They are a resource for everyone that is having difficulties raising their children or know someone that is having a hard time with their children. Parenting is one of the toughest jobs in the world, yet there is no training. The way any of us parent can have a lasting effect on a child's development and life. The Family Tree helps by giving parents knowledge that is derived from research and practice to effectively prevent child abuse and neglect by ensuring that every family has the tools they need to raise safe and healthy children.
