Ahmaud ‘Maud’ Arbery was killed while running Feb 23, 2020. Today I ran the Virtual Run in his honor organized by The 2:23 Foundation.
The 2:23 Foundation is a non-profit committed to engaging, educating, and equipping young Black and Brown men and women for social justice advocacy. They’ve organized a Virtual Run in honor of Maud that you can join to support the cause. It’s starts today and you have until 3/3 to run 2.23 miles.
I created a team – Run Eat Repeat (you have to pick a team or create one on registration). You are welcome to join my team. Everyone is welcome – runners, walkers, moral supporters – so feel free to pass it on to your buddies.
1. Register here: Events.elitefeats.com/223run (you’re welcome to join team Run Eat Repeat)
2. Run 2.23 Miles any day between 2/23 – 3/3.
3. Put your time on the website (& share on social if you’d like).
It’s only $23 & all proceeds go to scholarship fund that provides young men and women the opportunity to become future lawyers, local leaders, policymakers, and social engineers.
If you don’t run but want to support the cause – you can also make a donation (without signing up for the run). Get more information on The 2:23 Foundation on their website here.
I posted about it today on Instagram @RunEatRepeat and shared a link to the registration page in my Instagram Stories.
Please share with your running buddies. You can use the hashtags – #finishtherun #223fdn #RunEatRepeat to connect with other runners too.
Stay safe. Be kind. Pass it on.
