This month I was responsible for choosing the organization I would run my 13.1 miles for, and it was an easy decision. Putting a stop to bullying is something that I've been passionate about since I was a kid. While I can't say that I was a victim of bullying any more than most kids go through, I do recall the kids that were bullied more severely, and I regret not doing something about it. Hopefully now I can do a little something to help spread the word that bullying in any form needs to STOP.
