All fees are being covered by the Justice Run - any "fee" paid through CrowdRise will get donated directly to Resilience Rising!
Resilience Rising is more than just a non-profit organization - to our girls, it's home. And for most of them, it's the only truly safe and supportive one they've known. By supporting this organization, you are making an enormous difference in the lives of 8 young girls who have had their childhoods stolen from them. Please join me and Tom as we run for justice!
From our Founding Director:
It takes a village to raise a child. Please consider joining ours today. After five years of commitment and perseverance towards opening, we now have a home full of teenage girls. They are stubborn, and witty, and wild, and brave. We have had months full of breakdowns and breakthroughs. Afraid to be re-abandoned, they have tested our commitment and are slowly learning to trust. We have confronted issues of gender-based violence, family violence, and racism head on. During the week, we work hard preparing them for the future, and on the weekends, we play hard reclaiming a childhood lost. They are learning to express pain, anger, sadness, and love through poetry, song, movement, and art. "I can tell this is the start of something amazing. I wish they had brought me here sooner."
