I'm leaving today for Cincinnati to participate in my first half marathon on May 3 with Patti Digh and 11 other women from 10 cities in 8 different states. We are raising money for Metropolitan Ministries, an organization that helps poor and homeless people get jobs, housing, their lives back together...If you would like to make a donation, click here.
AND Patti's giving away t-shirts! As she notes, if you make a pledge to Metropolitan Ministries for $5 a mile or more ($65.50), she will send you one of the Life is a Verb Flying Pig half-marathon extravaganza t-shirts! Please be sure to note "Flying Pig--Digh" in the comment line so she will know who to send the t-shirt to, and send her an email at patti(at)pattidigh(dot)com with your address and t-shirt size.
"Every donation, no matter how large or small, counts, and gives back dignity to human beings just trying to make it, mile by mile."
