Every Yard for Yeardley, by Jackie Holt, note by Larry Eder

This is a fund raiser focused around the SunTrust/Richmond Marathon. I thought you should know about it......




I was recently contacted by Lane Holby, one of three people responsible for organizing a fundraiser called Every Yard For Yeardley. I'm sure you remember the extremely sad murder of Yeardley Love, a UVA lacrosse player, by her ex-boyfriend this past May. Holby is encouraging people to run "Every Yard For Yeardley" in the November 13,  SunTrust Richmond Marathon, McDonald's Half Marathon, or HCA Virginia 8k.


All money raised from this fundraiser will be donated to the One Love Foundation, which was created by Love's family in the wake of her death.


Please read over the information attached. It's a great cause!
