Bookworm with a View is a wonderful blogger and an amazing runner. She has organized several virtual runs and this one is for such a great reason - the goal of raising money to improve women lives. If just 20 people sign up, we can provide 40 families hygiene kits but I hope we have many more people participate!
Below is a summary of her post:
Mahila Partnership directly impacts the lives of women and their families in the communities they serve. 100% of EVERY dollar we raise will go towards an upcoming trip to Haiti.
What is a virtual run? Virtual runs create a sense of community without being present at an actual race location.
