I'm excited to be training to run the Oaktown Half Marathon on Aug 11.
This year I'll be trying to raise $2,000 or more for the David E Glover Center! The center has served over 600 students ages 12 and up in 2018. I personally witnessed the Summer of Innovation program in action. The students were excited to show me the projects they were working on.
In addition to working with the youth David E Glover Center also provides technology classes for seniors, after school programs, and they team up with the local schools.
Personally I have a goal simply completing the half marathon. I haven't been running or even walking much since my accident/head injury but I'm finally back in action. Selfishly I'm hoping by raising money it will also hold me accountable to train and complete the 13 miles - not looking for a personal best - just to cross the finish line! Also this center is doing some amazing work and I love that they are in the community of East Oakland. Meeting folks where they are at - the best way to do it!
Thank you for reading this far and for your continued support!
