What I look like when I run : )

Help 6,000 kids in low-income schools in Portland learn and embrace the value of a peaceful, healthy and active lifesyle!

I am running for recess! Each day our organization works with over 6,000 kids in Portland/Metro area schools to provide safe and healthy play and physical activity at recess and beyond. We strive to teach valuable life lessons and crucial social skills through one of life's simplest pleasures...PLAY! The core values at the root of what we do are respect, inclusion, healthy play and healthy community. Not only do these concepts shape and inspire the work I do each day, but they've also motivated me to run for the cause!

Please help by sponsoring my participation in this year's Shamrock Run as I try to raise $1500 by race day (March 18, 2012). I'm running the 15K, so it's really only $100 per K, right? I believe I can do it with your help...and maybe a little help from our friends : )

If you need a little guidance, check out the suggested donation amounts to the right...or just enter your own amount.

Support me AND make a difference in thousands of kids lives today! Win win!
