Race to Stop the Silence

In addition to my blogging comment frustration, I've been dealing with some health issues with my son (as many of you know who've been e-mailing back and forth with me instead of bothering with the comments). I'll have a fuller update for you later.

But, I can't forget to let everyone know about the event happening in D.C. tomorrow. It's the Race to Stop the Silence. The third annual 8K race is sponsored by the nonprofit, Stop Child Sexual Abuse organization at
www.stopcsa.org. The event is held, like all of Stop CSA's activities, to raise awareness and funds for CSA prevention and treatment. The local beneficiary of the Stop the Silence race is Safe Shores, the D.C. Children's Advocacy Center.

The 8K race begins at 8:30 a.m. There is also a 5K run/walk and a kids' fun run. New this year is the display of the start of the CSA Quilt by Safe Girls, Strong Girls, www.safegirlsstronggirls.org. The quilt is designed to promote public awareness of CSA. In addition to raising awareness, Safe Girls, Strong Girls supports girls with healing through the Arts. You can check out these links in order to help out these organizations and you can still register at Stop CSA for tomorrow's race.
