Running for Charity

Earlier this year I heard about the financial struggles faced by Womenspace, a domestic violence resource located in Eugene Oregon. Services provided by Womenspace include crisis intervention, advocacy, and education. The financial struggles forced Womenspace to close its walk-in advocacy program. When I heard this I wanted to help but was unsure how.

Being a graduate student does not shower me with extra funds. I enjoy running most of the time although I don’t like running in the rain… which is a challenge in the Pacific Northwest. In addition, running in a marathon is one of my “bucket list” goals.

Although I do not have extra money to give… I can run. And with this platform through IR4C.COM I am able to run, bring attention to Womenspace, and also raise some funds to help with their domestic violence services. There is nothing super human about me. I am an average person wanting to make a difference, no matter how big or small it may be.

Whether you know me and want to support me, or if you know Womenspace and think this is a cool way to support them, I hope you will make a financial donation to support Womenspace through my races.

Your contribution is tax deductible. I know for many people the economy is hard right now. But domestic violence does not go away in a bad economy. My guess is that it gets worse.

So whether you can give a couple hundred pennies or a few thousand dollars, know that anything will help. Seriously, thank you.

Individual donors and business sponsors can make donations online through: IR4C.COM (I RACE FOR CAUSE).

If you have questions, feel free to ask me.
