First and foremost, thank you for supporting us! My parents and I will be running a marathon (26.2 miles) over the span of 13 hours to raise money for the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund. Between the hours of 6am and 7pm on Friday, June 19th we will run a total of 26.2 miles by running 2 miles every hour. In addition to educating ourselves on the racial injustices in our country, and recognizing our privilege as white Americans, our goal is to raise money for an organization that works to achieve racial equity and justice through litigation, advocacy and education.
Thank you again for supporting us. I will be posting updates throughout the run on my Instagram page. If you'd like to follow along as we run through the day, please check out my page (@alizawhite815).
Thank you, Jenn, Chris & Aliza
