Please Sponsor Me – Oakland Running Festival!!

Ok, I lied.  I said today would be about Kuhl Frames but that will have to wait till next week, because I just realized it’s only two weeks until the Oakland Running Festival, and I have yet to get my fundraising on.  So here I go…

I’m taking part in the Oakland Running Festival in two weeks. This will be my first competitive running event, ever.

I am raising money for the wonderful Oaktown-based non-profit organization: The Ella Baker Center For Human Rights, working to build healthy thriving communities in Oakland.

I’ve never asked for money before, so please, if you can, support me in this endeavor by making a donation at my FirstGiving page, which contains more details about EBC, how I decided to get involved, my training regimen, and more:

Even the smallest donations will help!

You can donate online with a credit card. All donations are secure and sent directly to Ella Baker Center For Human Rights by FirstGiving, who will email you a printable record of your donation.

And please feel free to share this with anyone you think might like to donate.

Thank you so much!

    How’d the running go for you? Looks like the fundraising was a big success — $1100+ by you, and $28,000+ overall for Ella Baker Center.

      Well… to be blunt, I got beat by a bunch of 8 year old girl scouts. But hey, they have a lot less mass to haul across the finish line, right? I actually did pretty well, considering I’m not a runner at all… I finished in the top 1/3 of my division and the top 1/2 overall. Not too shabby. Thanks for your support!!!
