2nd Annual "Running to Remember Josh" Fundraiser - March 25, 2011

Dear Friends,

On March 26th, Lauren Anderson and close friends will run the SunTrust National Half Marathon in the honor of Joshua Lee Anderson, who tragically ended his life on March 18, 2009.  The Josh Anderson Memorial Fund was created shortly thereafter to support programs for the education and prevention of teenage suicide. Lauren, her mother and two dear friends ran the
marathon and half marathon last year on March 20, 2010 in Josh's honor and raised $8,000 towards the Fund!  This summer, Lauren will be moving back to the D.C. area to devote time and energy towards the fight against teenage suicide.

A Bar Fundraiser for the Josh Anderson Memorial Fund will take place on March 25, 2011 from 5-7 pm at
Rumors bar in D.C.   

Feel free to forward on to friends, family, colleagues and classmates as this is an open event to everyone.  We hope to see you there!
