EVENT: 2012 ING New York City Marathon - $1 Mil a Mile

EVENT DATE: Nov 04, 2012

THE STORY:

Hello.  My name is Garrete.

I’ve always loved running. My mother says I ran before I walked.  So you can understand how excited I am to be running in the ING NYC Marathon. I’m also glad to be on the Fortune Society Flyers team. Fortune has been so good to me --and for me.

I became a Fortune client in 2011.  I was sent here by a judge who thought that with the right help I could straighten out my life.  It was tough at first, everyday lots of classes and counseling, and I’ll admit I had a pretty bad attitude.  But slowly my teachers and counselors helped me change, they gave me hope that my life could be different. I started studying for a GED and when I pass the test I want to go to college.Also, I just finished a culinary arts course here. They promised to help me find a job in food service, so I’ll be able to save some money for college.

Getting a GED and going to college would never be something in my life without The Fortune Society.  They really motivated me, they changed me.

Please support me in the Marathon.  Your donations will help other kids like me who get into trouble to change their lives too.

Thanks.

The Fortune Society is a nonprofit social service and advocacy organization, founded in 1967, whose mission is to support successful reentry from prison and promote alternatives to incarceration, thus strengthening the fabric of our communities.

Fortune works to create a world where all who are incarcerated or formerly incarcerated can become positive, contributing members of society.  We do this through a holistic, one-stop model of service provision, based on more than 40 years of experience working with people with criminal records.  We’ve found that without a solid foundation in core skill areas, too many of these individuals resort to the self-destructive choices that result in crime and incarceration.  Our continuum of care, informed and implemented by professionals with cultural backgrounds and life experiences similar to those of our clients, helps ensure their success.
