Paris Runs for Jim

Why #IRunForJim

 

 

 

It’s that time of year again! Join me in running for Jim and Press Freedom in the 8th annual James W. Foley Freedom 5k (and you can certainly walk it if that’s more your speed :) )

Those of you who know me are likely aware that James Foley, the American journalist held captive for two years and publicly murdered by ISIS on August 19, 2014, was my cousin. Jim was a committed conflict journalist, a compassionate teacher and mentor, and a humanitarian who aspired to live a life of moral courage. He continues to inspire me every day.

For the past seven years, our Paris community has played a huge part in making the annual James W. Foley Freedom 5k a success, and for that, my family and I thank you!

The run will take place in the Parc de Saint Cloud on Saturday, November 5 at 10am. We will be meeting at the American School of Paris.

Whether you can make it or not, please consider making a donation. The mission of the foundation is "to advocate for the safe return of all Americans detained abroad, to protect independent conflict journalists and to educate regarding these threats to our freedom."

Thank you again for your support this year and all the years before. It really means the world to my family and all those who cared about Jim.

Sincerely,
Maria Colina
