A Message from Leigh-Ana Rossitto:
What does a safe space mean to you? Do you have a safe place to be during the day to get some of your basic needs met?
I am running the Cambridge Half-Marathon to raise funds for the Cambridge Women's Center, a supportive community space for women. I need YOUR help to reach our fundraising goals, before I race on Sunday, November 3rd. The Cambridge Women's Center is a safe space for all women that provides needed free programming and refuge for women in need, 6 days a week.
I was first introduced to the Center during my pre-orientation week at MIT, and supported the Center during undergrad through the MIT Vagina Monologues. When I graduated, I decided to continue my involvement as a direct service volunteer, and it has been so rewarding. I volunteer regularly with the Cambridge Women's Center because I love the members, volunteers, and the Center's mission. I'm running to give back to a community that has given ME so much!
