"I have lived in the amazing city of Charlotte for almost 35 years. I am a wife, mother of 4 children, and a former Critical Care Nurse for Pediatric and Adult patients. I have seen many incredible changes take place in one of the most beautiful,cities in the country but unfortunately, along with the new growth, has come a grueling, fast pace, stressful, lifestyle for many of our citizens, especially the homeless. The Charlotte health care system is cutting edge locally and nationally however our current mental healthcare system, has left many high risk citizens without proper diagnosis, care and treatment.


The mission of "RunningWorks" addresses many of these problems, while providing education,insight, and and direction for those most in need. My hope as a "social butterfly" is to connect with my new friend at RunningWorks, help promote the partnership between RunningWorks and our Mental Health care system, and most important to "shhhhhhhhhh" ........... get people "talking" about Mental Health Awareness and its importance in our community."

ABOUT Metamorphosis: Social Butterfly Experiment presented by Trinity Partners
Metamorphosis is a unique event that merges fashion and philanthropy. For the third year, RunningWorks is partnering with world-renown fashion designer Luis Machicao, who has been commissioned by the President of Peru (his home country) to serve as “style ambassador” for the Peruvian First Lady.
In years past, Machicao has showcased his latest collections using professional models on the runway. This year, we are changing the format with the announcement of the Metamorphosis: Social Butterfly Experiment. We have handpicked 8 dynamic, passionate and philanthropic influencers or “Social Butterflies” from the community to serve as mentors for members of the RunningWorks team. On September 22, each Social Butterfly will walk the runway with their mentee during the third annual RunningWorks Metamorphosis Fashion Event at LaCa Projects. (Purchase Event Tickets Here).
Mentors and mentees will meet over the course of the next 90 days. They will also compete as a team to see who can raise the most awareness and financial support for combatting homelessness in the Carolinas. The challenge runs April 1 through September 1, but the relationships forged between mentors and mentees will continue. To support one or all of the Social Butterflies, go to their individual campaign pages and click the "Donate" button.
Your support of RunningWorks is truly appreciated!
