Alicia and Ilene are doing the Berkshire Half Marathon on May 27 to support My Sisters Place. Help people in need take steps toward freedom!

As some of you know, until last year I'd never signed up for any kind of athletic event in my life, but when my wonderful niece Alicia suggested we do a half-marathon together, I couldn't resist! This year, we'll again be doing the Berkshire Half-Marathon starting at Tanglewood, MA, on May 27. Alicia and I have decided to use this opportunity to support an important cause: My Sisters' Place. My Sisters' Place offers extensive education, advocacy, and direct services to victims of abuse. It is also a NY State center of excellence in working with victims of human trafficking. Please join two wild and crazy women, Alicia and me, in this great walking adventure, and make it even more meaningful by pledging to help us help My Sisters' Place. Every step we take can be a step toward freedom, safety and self respect for those who need it most. Last year, we raised more than $1500. This year, we are trying for $2000. We know there are many important causes to support, so we thank you in advance for any support you can give us and them, no matter how small the amount. Wish us luck!
