Hi friends and family,
I will be running a half marathon in August to raise awareness of racism and racial injustice. From now and until then, I will be raising money, doubling it, and donating it to The Bail Project.
For anyone that knows me, I am not fond of running. I set a goal to run a half marathon for a cause. After hearing about the horrific murders of Ahmaud Arbery, George Floyd, and many more, I feel that it is important to bring awareness. Racism in this country has caused many Black Americans living in fright every day and every action they take. Enough is enough. It is time we all bring awareness and demand change. They deserve the right to go on a run, sleep soundly in their house, get arrested, among others WITHOUT the fear of getting murdered. I cannot begin to understand and imagine the fright that they have to live in because of racism. If you have thought about making a donation, please consider supporting an organization with a mission statement that will help to bring awareness to racial inequality in the black community.
