BENEFITING: American Indian Community Council Inc
EVENT: Honda LA Marathon 2012
EVENT DATE: Mar 18, 2012
I love my community. Not growing up on a reservation or around the Native American culture, once I found it, it became something I treasured.
I've been involved in several Los Angeles Native agencies, organization and groups. I love the AICC because we are really trying to unite all of our community and bring all the orgs. to the table. It doesn't matter what org. you come from, if you just moved here or don't know much about our people, we encourage people to come to one of our meetings and get connected.
Our meetings and events are great places to meet new friends, network and be reunited with old friends. We love those that are open to making positive changes for our LA Native community.
So because I love my people and AICC so much, my 10th marathon is dedicated to them. A few of us from AICC are running the 2012 LA Marathon, so we decided to use the race to help raise funds for AICC. We just got our non-profit status, and this is our first official fundraiser :-) We want to use the funds to help get us up and running (no pun intended).
If you aren't able to donate right now, come out and support us on race day! We'll be at Mile 17 with a drum group. (Wait, I won't be there, I'll just be passing by).
Hope to see you at an AICC meeting or on Marathon day, March 18th :-)
Love and peace,
