Their lives are important, they are worth the fight. Will you come run with us? Will you give the world a reason to dance? Also, the students are excepting donations for contents of STREET BAGS that the staff of Purchased delivers to women in need: snack items hygiene items girly gifts --4 or 5 items in each bag CLUB BAGS Lotion, body wash (Bath and Body works type) Make up Perfume Nail care items Lip gloss --2 or 3 items in the bags...these items are a little fancier than street outreach bags, no bars of soap and things like that...basically things that you would give a girlfriend! If you want to donate those items you can bring them to the race.
