Dan McGowan and Jess Joiner are two running buddies who have been logging miles and discussing social issues throughout the pandemic. It's time for action, both in fitness but more importantly activism so let's R.A.C.E.
Thanks for the donations everyone! Jess and I successfully completed the 50 in 24 challenge this past weekend. We really appreciate the support and couldn't have done it without you.
We are challenging ourselves to run 50 miles in 24 hours in order to raise money for Blueprint NC. While a test of fitness is always challenging, we also wanted to engage in the fight against social injustice.
100% of the funds raised will be donated to Blueprint NC. Blueprint is a network of 41 non-profit, non-partisan organizations working together across issues and racial lines to advance equity and social justice in North Carolina.
Blueprint provides opportunities for training, resource sharing and convening for partner organizations that use civic engagement and education to advocate for a healthy democracy that works to remove barriers and to provide the resources communities need to achieve opportunity, security and well-being.
We believe in a North Carolina in which every person can achieve their true potential and in which every community can thrive...a state in which people and neighborhoods are safe, healthy and just. In today’s North Carolina far too many individuals, families and communities are being left behind, excluded from participation in the processes of democracy and left out of growing prosperity.
Working together we can better address the complex issues of racial injustice, the massive and growing gap between the richest and poorest, and the privatization of public resources for private financial gain. All of these issues are exacerbated by money in politics and legislative efforts to decrease the power of the vote.
