HERES THE DEAL! I'm running the LA Marathong (lol) for my second year with my favorite organization of all-time, My Friend's Place! They are dedicated to ENDING YOUTH HOMELESSNESS!
Last year, I came up with a bit to try to get sponsored by Arby's and walked the whole marathon with a carrot on a stick device to carry a beef and cheddar in front of me as motivation . I ate the beef and cheddar at the finish line. Unfortunately, I found out from Arbys 2 weeks before the 2020 race that they do NOT do sponsorships.
Heres the thing, a HUGE struggle for people experiencing homelessness is HUNGER, so I am still looking for a FOOD SPONSOR! Since Beyond Meat is a localy owned company (HQ in El Segundo) I think they would be the perfect candidate to help feed youth in our community! I wouldnt ask for something for nothing, however, so Sunday , March 8th I am running 26 MILES, and I plan to dedicate each mile to any person who makes a donation of $10 + or more to my fundraiser. Why $10? I think $~10 is a small but manageable amount to provide a warm nutritious meal to a person in need. I hope to get at least 26 donations for 26 meals so I can ask BEYOND MEAT TO MATCH ME IN FEEDING OUR COMMUNITY'S HOMELESS YOUTH! That would be a TOTAL of 52 MEALS!
I strongly believe in the power of a community to come together. My Friend's Place provides comprehensive services to help transform the narrative of Los Angeles homeless youth, so please consider helping me help them END YOUTH HOMELESSNESS and END YOUTH HUNGER By dedicating $10 or more today!
