In January, I attended a meeting at the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum. The venue held the first meeting of the year for the Land Runners, the running club I joined last year. While there, we were given the vision for the 2017 and reminded of the mission of the Memorial. I was genuinely touched by what was shared in that meeting. Admittedly though, the inspiration I initially received from that meeting slowly faded. Like we can all do at times, I let other tasks take priority. The result was no real action took place to help like I originally desired to.
However, with the participation of the CommUNITY Run last week and the beginning of the Alliance Tour this week, it brought the OKC Memorial back into the forefront. With the time I have left between now and the time of the run, I would like to contribute in any way I can to help the Memorial. I am asking if you would consider helping me support their mission,
"We come here to remember those who were killed, those who survived and those changed forever. May all who leave here know the impact of violence. May this memorial offer comfort, strength, peace, hope and serenity.®"
The Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum does not receive any annual operating funds from the federal, state or local government. Museum admissions, store sales, the OKC Memorial Marathon, earnings from an endowment and private fundraising allow the Memorial and Museum to be self-sustaining.
The marathon is the memorial's largest fundraiser of the year. I have a goal for $10 per victim of the OKC bombing. This makes the fundraising goal $1,680. If you would, please consider making a $10 donation through the link located directly below. None of the funds will be going to Sweat Is Free Wellness or myself. All donations are given to the Oklahoma City Memorial and Museum. Thank you in advance for considering.
