This year I have decided to run the 3rd race in the Run Houston Race Series for my birthday. I am registered for the 5K version and am hoping to get my best time ever with this race. Maybe it'll be closer to 25 mintues! The race falls near my actual birthday, June 3rd, so I am planning to donate my birthday to charity once again. I have chosen Houston Area Women's Center as my Reason2Race®.
I have known about Houston Area Women's Center (HAWC) for several years, but it wasn't until moving into the city that I have been involved with them and volunteering whenever I get the chance. Since being on the inside helping with some of their events, I have gotten a deeper appreciation for all that they do for those in abusive situations.
I am a survivor of rape and child sexual abuse. For six years of my life as a child I was in constant fear of being touched, molested or raped. I wish I had known more about resources available to help in these situations. I know that HAWC has done wonderful work to help children in situations like mine, so I want to help them to be able to continue to do this kind of work. As an adult, it's nice to know that they have a hotline that is available 24/7 to help with anything that could be related to abuse. I have gone to HAWC myself to use their services and could tell the people that work there are wonderful, loving souls that want to see things change for victims of any abuse.
Please help me reach my goal and make my birthday a success! Any amount is great, small or large, it is all helpful in reaching my goal and it will all go to a great cause with the Houston Area Women's Center.
Thank you in advance for any contribution you are able to commit to and thank you for wanting to help end sexual and domestic violence!
