Why #IRunForJim

Jim Foley is a Medill alum who was in the Washington Program in 2007. I remeber his passion to become a conflict reporter and I am saw proud of the important stories he told before his capture by ISI in 2012 and his 2014 murder.

I hope you all wiill walk, run or make a donation to help the Foley Foundation contrinue its important work of advocacy for the safe return of all Americans held hostage or wrongfully detained abroad.

Here's the plan:

Meet at Peirce Mill, 2401 Tilden Street NW, in Rock Creek Park. Parking is available, but limited. The nearest Metro stop is Cleveland Park on the Red Line.

Registration and refreshments begin at 8:30 a.m. on Oct. 15.

The run begins at 9 a.m.

For runners, we will have a timer. For walkers, have fun and walk at your own pace. Or just come and support those running or walking!

Afterward, we invite you to join us at 11 a.m. in Georgetown, specifically at 3125 M Street NW - the alley way between Levain Bakery and an Irish pub – where the Bring Our Families Home campaign sponsored the creation of a 15-foot tall mural spanning the wall that features large photos of 18 Americans wrongfully detained abroad.  Refreshments will be served.
