A message from Meghan Whitacre :
I'm participating in "Journey to Justice - Running to support racial justice" and am asking you to support me by pledging per mile during my fundraising campaign. I believe in this cause and I'm excited to earn your support with every mile. Please help me reach the campaign goal of $4,000 by pledging now. I really appreciate your support. Thank you!
All money raised will be distributed equally to Color of Change and Campaign Zero. These organizations work to fight racial injustice in its various forms, including economic, criminal, health, and media injustices. Campaign Zero specifically works to implement police reforms such as, demilitarizing, longer training, and focusing on ways to de-escalate situations.
Our Inspiration: We want to raise money to fight for racial justice in light of recent events, including the murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor. The idea to run to raise money was inspired by the fact that Ahmaud Arbery was killed while he was on a run.
How to Get Involved: You can either pledge your support by the mile or at a flat rate. You can also show your support by spreading the word and/or sharing this link via social media!
With this small act we hope to inspire people to stay engaged with this issue by following our journey and watching the progress grow. Every cent will make a difference!
