Hello! On Sunday, October 27th I will be running in the Marine Corps Marathon 10k event - the same day as the Marine Corps Marathon, one of the most popular marathons in the country (I've hung up my marathon shoes for the foreseeable future). My participation will benefit Building Bridges Across the River (BBAR) and Town Hall Education Arts Recreation Campus (THEARC) located in Southeast DC. I hope that you can make a donation (small or large) to help me reach my fundraising goal of $1,000 or more.
About BBAR & THEARC: BBAR improves the quality of life for children and adults who reside east of the Anacostia River in DC by providing leadership, management and financial oversight of the THEARC, 11th Street Bridge Park, BBAR Farms, THEARC Theater and Skyland Workforce Center. As THEARC’s managing partner, BBAR is the engine behind all of the facility’s services and programs. The organization oversees and maintains the campus grounds, and fosters collaboration between THEARC’s resident partners who include The Washington Ballet, The Boys & Girls Club, DC Central Kitchen, The Washington School for Girls, Levine School of Music, Covenant House, Children’s National Health, AppleTree Institute for Education, The Phillips Collection, The Bishop Walker School for Boys and The David Lynch Foundation (Transcendental Meditation). Through these collaborations, THEARC provides access to high quality educational, health, cultural, recreation, and social service programs which contribute to the revitalization of the community in Southeast Washington.
