BENEFITING: SANDY HOOK PROMISE FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: SANDY HOOK PROMISE FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
I am running with the Sandy Hook Promise Foundation in remembrance of the 20 children and 6 adults who lost their lives to a tragic act of violence on December 14, 2012. I feel especially connected to the work of this foundation because my mother is a teacher in Newtown, Connecticut. It is comforting to know that the money I raise will help with the education and empowerment of parents, schools and communities on mental health & wellness programs that identify, intervene and help at-risk individuals and gun safety practices that ensure that firearms are kept safe and secure.
About Sandy Hook Promise Foundation
Sandy Hook Promise is a national non-profit organization founded and led by several family members whose loved ones were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14, 2012. Our Mission: Prevent gun-related deaths due to crime, suicide and accidental discharge so that no other parent experiences the senseless, horrific loss of their child.
Based in Newtown, Connecticut, our intent is to honor all victims of gun violence by turning our tragedy into a moment of transformation by providing programs and practices that protect children from gun violence.
By uniting people of all beliefs and backgrounds who value the protection of children to take meaningful actions in their homes and communities, we will prevent gun violence and stop the tragic loss of life.
