Hello and thank you for taking the time to consider donating! I'm Deputy Bethany Lau with the Clark County Sheriff's Office. This is my first year running any type of marathon and my first year with PAL, the Police Activities League of Vancouver, Washington!
I'm working with PAL because they are so involved with the local community - I've worked with them and attended reading events at local schools and I'm going to be going on a weeklong camping trip with a group of young girls. These various events help expose the youth of Vancouver to experiences that help them learn and grow. I couldn't be more excited to work with such an amazing group of people.
I've set a high goal because I truly believe in PAL and the work they do - I hope you feel the same way and are able to donate to help them continue working with local youth.
I will be running the 5K with a group of teenage girls that I've gotten to know! We went camping together through PAL and Big City Mountaineers. We will be running as a group and I'm so excited to get to see them again - a week in the woods camping brought out nothing but the best of them all.
