Pat Sullivan of Charleston Moves was kind enough to share these pictures taken by Larry Monteith of Wednesday’s Ride of Silence. About 150 folks, including the P&C’s own David Quick, met at Hampton Park and rode about 8 miles in remembrance of cyclists killed or injured. The route took them by the ghost bike honoring Edwin Garner.
If you read Shirley Greene’s column on Monday, you saw that the YWCA has several events going on this week as part of its Stand Against Racism.
On Thursday night, there’s a combination monodrama presentation and panel discussion, co-sponsored by the Zonta Club of Charleston. The event takes place from 6-7:30 at the YWCA, 106 Coming St. A $5 donation is suggested. It is open to women and men.
I was lucky, determined and physically fit enough to earn a Boston-qualifying time at the Myrtle Beach Marathon in February 2007.
I ran Boston in 2008. I can remember being close to the finish, catching a quick glimpse of my then-boyfriend as I took the final turn that would put me onto Boylston and across the finish line.
New info: Just found out that the event will be held at Marion Square on April 25.
If you saw today’s column you know that People Against Rape was set to host its Take Back the Night event at Brittlebank Park tonight, but it has been postponed until April 25 because of the weather. That’s a shame; the mood among the folks at PAR was really hopeful and energized.
PAR was also using social media to publicize the event; see more on PAR’s Facebook page.
Many more social service agencies and nonprofits are wading into social media to broaden their reach.
