Sponsor me & Amnesty International!

Amnesty International is really a great organization. They are committed to helping those who are denied justice or freedom. I could say more, but if you’re interested at this point, why don’t you check out their website:

So this October I am running the Scotiabank Marathon in Toronto on behalf of this wonderful movement. It would be wonderful if you could spare whatever you can to help and support the cause! You will receive an official tax receipt on your e-mail, and any amount counts :) 

Thank you! 

Love Joelle

I wish you the best of luck with your decision. And if you’ve decided to go ahead with the program, I’m sure you won’t regret it :) Contact me if you ever need any help!
