On Saturday, May 7, the Denton community gathered early to support Woman To Woman Pregnancy Resource Center at the first annual Let’s Do Denton Life 5K & Family Fun Run. Inanna Birth & Women’s Care Center hosted the event and named Woman To Woman the financial beneficiary. AmeriCorps VISTA, Marissa Castilleja, played a significant role in the marketing by designing the brochures, posters, and other promotional items for the 5K. She also utilized a group of 12 women on her Social Media Team to help spread the word about the event on Facebook and other social media platforms. The day of the event, Marissa helped manage 15 volunteers who contributed almost 70 hours of service. Overall, the 5k was a huge success and Marissa played a critical role to help to raise $31,000 for Woman To Woman.
