Thank you for taking a moment to stop by and take a look at my page. My name is Marina Good, and I am running the 2020 United Airlines NYC Half Marathon on Vanessa's Team. Together, we are supporting a world in which everyone can run boldly and live fearlessly.
I grew up in Princeton, MA, and can remember the Sunday that changed everything about our small town, the day that Vanessa was assaulted and murdered. It is with great honor and pride that I help to support the foundation created in her name, and I ask that you take the time to learn more about the self defense programs and incredible support the Vanessa T. Marcotte Foundation provides to ensure that there will never again be a life lived in fear. I hope you'll help me to reach my goal, but more than that I hope that you choose to support Vanessa's spirit as it lives on in her foundation's work.
Check out my Facebook profile (https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100013524345466&ref=bookmarks) and Instagram page (https://www.instagram.com/marinarosegood/?hl=en) for updateson on my training and fundraising progress. Stay tuned for opportunities to support Vanessa's Team and win some cool prizes in January! Please feel free to reach out with any questions or if you'd like more information.
More than 600 women are assaulted each day. We need to step up and fight back!
The mission of the Vanessa T. Marcotte Foundation is to empower women to live boldly and fearlessly, and to help create a world where women live free from objectification and harassment. The Foundation advocates for female empowerment, safety awareness, and gender equality. It furthers its mission by providing self-defense training to thousands of women and partnering with youth-focused organizations providing programming and mentorship opportunities to address the route cause of violence against women.
Our inspiration? Vanessa Marcotte - a kind, compassionate, intelligent, and philanthropic young woman who was tragically killed at the age of 27 while she was out for a run. Her senseless death fuels our continued efforts.
