Ranked 1 of 45 fundraisers - $9,245.75 raised by 106 supporters
My personal goal is to raise $8,460. This number [8:46] will be an indelible value to me in this effort. If I am able to meet this goal in ONE WEEK, I will pledge to run another marathon (my 2nd) and continue to use this platform to educate and support this amazing community. I'm participating in "Run Against Racism" and am asking you to support me by pledging per mile during my fundraising campaign. I believe in this cause and I'm excited to earn your support with every mile. Thank you!
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.
