Hi Friends! I am running 36 kilometers to celebrate my 36th birthday around DC.
Inspiration for this doing this came from the women living at Calvary. Calvary Women's Services is a place I have volunteered for over 15 years and the women I have met there have had a profound impact on my experience in Washington, DC.
Throughout the pandemic, residents and staff have been taking daily walks together to get fresh air, exercise and to re-center themselves. One of the women told us, “I look forward to the walks every day. They give me peace and allow me to leave my worries behind for an hour. The walks are a blessing during this time.” Time outdoors has been my mental/emotional lifeline as well.
Since the COVID crisis started, Calvary Women's Service have been spending an additional $1,000 a day to keep women safe.
Thus, I am asking for kilometer-based sponsorship. ANYTHING is helpful, but....
If you contribute 50 cents per kilometer, you will donate $18.
I'm especially hoping you will contribute one dollar per kilometer, donating a total of $36... or more, if you care to!
Two dollars per kilometer is $72.
