It all started when my friends forgot when my birthday was and one friend in particular told me that there was no better time to guilt-trip them into doing something with me. So, I decided to enlist them in running a half-marathon and raising funds for Love146.
I first came across Love146 while I was a college student in New Haven and fell in love with the work they were doing. After I graduated, I moved to Philadelphia to attend podiatric medical school. Last August—when my friends forgot my birthday—I organized my first fundraiser for Love146: I ran the Love Run Half-Marathon, Philly’s premier spring race.
This year, eight of us ran the race together and raised $2,213!
Our day was filled with all sorts of love—love for each other, love for running, love for children, love for Love146, and the greatest Love. Each member of my team ran amazingly. I am floored by the results and I am grateful to have people who come alongside me to fight back against trafficking, a tragic and very real evil that plagues our world today.
