When our good friend (and ultra marathoner) Sophie Speidel mentioned to her running community that she was helping out with the running programs at Friendship Court, we received an amazing offer from one of her friends.

Jessica Spears, a runner, kindergarten teacher, and recently certified teacher of Yoga, wanted to dedicate the revenues from her first yoga teaching to our young runners program.  We were so touched by this kindness, and by the generosity of the Eliza Whiteman, owner of FlyDog Yoga where the class was held.

We were able to persuade them to come by with their donation so we could thank these lovely and kind ladies in person.  We are so grateful to them and to this community that engenders a real spirit of generosity.  If you would like to support the Friendship Court running program, you can do so here.
