My final event with To Write Love On Her Arms featured 2,550 people running in all 50 states and 13 countries around the world. It was the 5th annual Run For It 5k.
Over 700 people ran for something that mattered in Satellite Beach, Florida and that was amazing to see. It was also absolutely amazing to be so involved with this event. Working with administration I got to work with runner registration the day before and day of as well as monitored the online fundraising pages. Oh yeah, did I mention we raised over $56,000 for help, hope, and recovery?! That’s AMAZING!
It was such a unique experience getting to hear and read people’s stories as to why they were running as well as fundraise on my own for such an amazing movement.
This event was definitely a great last hurrah as a TWLOHA intern.
