BENEFITING: Human Rights Campaign NYC Marathon Team
ORGANIZER: Human Rights Campaign NYC Marathon Team
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
I think it's pretty simple. At the most fundamental level it's a matter of human dignity, building stable families and providing for our loved ones. People should be treated equally. But in too many schools, too many offices, and too many hospitals, people are subjected to bullying or unfair treatment based on nothing more than their sexuality.
I believe you can't change hearts and minds until it's personal, so I'm making it personal. I'm advancing equality forward with each step I take and every dollar I raise. As a country, we have made great strides in equality. We have overcome women's suffrage, Jim Crow, Don't ask don't tell... but there's so much more to do and the Human Rights Campaign is working day in and day out to push for equality all around the country.
This is the civil rights movement of our generation and I intend to keep moving forward, one step at a time, until we reach the finish line. That's why I'm running the TCS New York City Marathon on November 6th.
Will you help me by making a tax-deductible donation to support my run? Any amount you give now will go a long way for this important cause and I'd be truly grateful.
Thanks in advance for your help. I'm looking forward to race day, and can't wait to tell you all about it once I've crossed the finish line.
