Can you run the DC Half and Haf Marathon? 13.1 miles with a half smoke at Bens in the middle!
The DC Half and Half Marathon is uniquely DC. On November 3rd, we will start at Carter Baron Amphitheatre and run 6.55 miles to Ben’s Chili Bowl on U street. Participants will then eat a Half Smoke and then run the 6.55 miles back to the start/finish line. You can learn more about this event at http://www.halfandhalfmarathon.com
Money that is raised from this half marathon will benefit ScholarCHIPS which is a non-profit that was started by my former 7th grade student at Paul Public Charter School. Yasmine Arrington realized that as she looked for scholarship money to go to college there was no organization to help students in her predicament. Her father was incarcerated and she thought that there should be a scholarship to help students with incarcerated parents. Yasmine started ScholarCHIPS last year and has already given one round of scholarships to students with incarcerated parents. I am so thrilled to be able to stay in contact with Yasmine as she has grown up and also to create a fun run to benefit her organization.
