I am so proud of Freeing Sisyphus for using her love for running for one of her other love's-giving back. She sent this email out. I loved it. She shares reasons why she runs and how it has changed her life.
This picture is of her first half marathon last year in November here in Indy. This was right at the finish. She was so elated-her face just shines as all the thoughts make their way through her mind.
So its inspiration today folks.
Apologies for the blast email, but I wanted to let everyone know about my upcoming race and a great cause.
I became passionate about running over four years ago, and it has changed my life in ways that are too many to mention. This year, I will be running the Philadelphia 1/2 Marathon in my new hometown on November 20th. What's good for the body is good for the soul, so I am running this race on behalf of Covenant House who seeks to shelter and feed kids who do not have or cannot go home.
For millions of homeless kids, basic needs like a hearty meal, warm bed, and safe shelter are true luxuries. Instead of knowing the joys of childhood, every day these kids face the life-or-death dangers of living on the streets.
Covenant House was founded 38 years ago with the mission to help these homeless kids. Today, Covenant House is the largest privately-funded agency in the Americas providing food, shelter, immediate crisis care, and essential services to homeless, throwaway, and runaway kids.
Covenant House doesn't stop at offering an immediate safe harbor to homeless kids, they strive to move each young person forward down the path to an independent adulthood, free from the risk of future homelessness.
