EVENT DATE: Nov 04, 2012
I'm running my fourth marathon for Success Academy Charter Schools, an amazing network of schools that serves disadvantaged parts of New York City and produces some of the top school results in the whole state. They do incredible work, and I'm proud to be running to support them.
I have to raise $3,000 dollars to hold my spot in the New York Marathon, but I'm pushing to raise at least $5,000. These schools need all the support -- financial and otherwise -- they can get, and so I'm hoping to provide a little extra for them. Please consider donating to these great schools.
If you'd like to learn more about the Success Academy schools, you should watch the movie The Lottery, produced by one of my good friends, Todd. The movie is all about Harlem Success Academy, and it will blow you away.
Thank you for all your help!!
PS All donations are tax-deductible. Just hit the big button that says DONATE.

Our goal is to provide world-class education to our scholars and we are constantly innovating to ensure we are employing the absolute best and most financially efficient methods of educating them. Every day we work to create an a rigorous and joyful learning environment for our own scholars while pushing for education policy reform so that ALL children have access to education they deserve. And we are incredibly proud of what our scholars have achieved! They are among the brightest, highest-achieving students in the state of New York thanks to the support of our dedicated teachers, staff and parents, as well as the preparation provided by our comprehensive curriculum and school model. Importantly, while attaining stellar test scores is certainly wonderful, it is not our primary focus. Rather, our objective is to prepare our scholars with a best-in-class education foundation that sets them up for success in college and beyond.
