Running Down the Walls 2006

August 11, 2006


This is a report regarding the LA Running Down the Walls- though the numbers were small- we were still able to raise a nice amount of funds for our supported projects. Here is how the run panned out:

About 25 people showed up for the event through out the day and about ten or so ran at the LA run.

With this years Running Down the Walls, we were able to raise roughly about $900 dollars at just the LA event. Reports have yet to come out from the other locations.

We had solidarity runs in several locations including five prison runs and two cities. While the funds are always an important aspect of the run- it is always the solidarity runs that mean the most to us. It shows how important the day is to those we support.

Two statements were read; one from Ali Khalid Abdullah and Jaan Laaman, plus a audio recording from Jaan Laaman, which was played early on in the day. A few words were said from Jen Lamont- wife of poltical prisoner Matt Lamont.

We have received word from a few people that they were not able to find the run location at the park. To those people we apologize for the mix up. We did attempt to put numerous signs throughout the park – including a syndicalist flag at our location- but I guess we were not as visible as we needed to be.

For those who still wish to give donations- you can still send them to LA-ABCF.

Proceeds will be divided between the Growing Healthy program and the ABCF Warchest.
