Ranked 3 of 45 fundraisers - $2,621.85 raised by 42 supporters
Cursing running and racism with every step of these 13.1 miles. I'm participating in "Run Against Racism" in order to raise money for EJI, ACLU, BLM, and BBBS and keep the support for BIPOC in focus long term. I've never run more than 3.1 miles, but tagging in for member/friend/inspiration Ashley Hicks. Stoked to have Vida team up with me for this! Boxer and Biker turned runners. LFG. <3
We are asking any members that want to participate to join us for our Run Against Racism; they will complete a half marathon anytime between August 15-21. We need YOU to help and pledge money for either the total number of miles run by our entire membership base (Arlington and DC studios) or one flat amount. All of the money raised will be distributed among 4 different groups that help fight racism and the systems that perpetuate it. We will be donating every penny raised, split evenly, to:
**ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) **- an organization that works in the courts, legislatures and communities to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed to all people in this country by the Constitution and laws of the United States.
**Big Brothers Big Sisters of America **- an organization that helps children realize their potential and build their futures, nurturing children and strengthening communities.
**Black Lives Matter **- an organization that works to eradicate white supremacy and build local power to intervene in violence inflicted on Black communities by the state and vigilantes, creating space for Black imagination, innovation and joy.
EJI (Equal Justice Initiative) - an organization that works to end mass incarceration, excessive punishment and racial inequality.
