|Starting Line - In front of Mutt Lynch's
This weekend I entered the Run for Our Little Roses half marathon. This was a true fund raiser event for a very worthy cause, that being to provide a full-time residential home for abused, abandoned and neglected girls in Honduras. The organization behind the event is dedicated to transforming broken lives into productive, joyful young women.
Our Little Roses provides a home for young girls that come from abject poverty, physical or sexual abuse, abandonment and oppression. They are infants, toddlers, young girls and teenagers. According to Our Little Roses, these girls have endured extreme neglect, abandonment, and abuse. They often are left alone to fend for themselves --unable to care for or protect themselves.
Here are some pictures from what turned out to be a fun and worthy event in Newport and Huntington Beach, CA. What followed the run was a bit of a crawl...though Newport's finest dive bars.
