THE STORY:

 

Dear Friends and Family,

In November I am running the New York City Marathon to support my school, Harlem Success Academy Three. Running the New York City Marathon has always been on my "bucket list," but this opportunity is even more exciting because the money I raise will benefit a cause very dear to my heart.

Working with my scholars at Harlem Success Academy 3 has taught me the true meaning of resilience. Everyday, my kids come to school excited to learn and ready to work hard-- they take their education very seriously. My 4th graders have their eyes set on college, and I truly believe that because of this school, they will all get there. My scholars know that their neighborhoods are rough and that their friends at other schools don't receive the opportunities that they do. They are incredibly appreciative of the resources that the school provides, which is why I am so thrilled to be raising money on behalf of the scholars and their families.

I hope you will support my scholars and me as I train for this marathon. Your donations will help close the achievement gap that plagues so many in New York City.

  I can't wait to keep you all informed of my progress as I train for the race of my life.

Thank you,

Brooke
