If you were like me, I was devastated to hear the news about Sandy Hook Elementary School on Friday. I couldn't believe how someone could take innocent lives of 6-7 years olds. It broke my heart that they would never be able to smile, laugh, or learn. Not only do I hurt for the victims, but it hurts to think about how these families have prepared for Christmas only for their child to be taken away. Presents will remain unopened this Christmas.
With that said, we have a chance to change lives. We have a chance to make a difference. Although money will not bring back those sweet faces, it can help with funeral arrangements and such for these families.
On December 31st, there is a race - Sandy Hook Elementary Memorial 5K and Half Marathon. It's a virtual race that can be done at any time. You can walk, swim, bike, run, anything. It's $20 for the 5K and $30 for the half. If you are interested, here's the link:
I'm not trying to make you but just think about it. If you decide not to, that's fine. All I ask is that you will share this race with other friends on FB and SP, so that we can get the word out.
