THE STORY:

Aloha, my name is Miriam Gleckman and I’m a Program Guide at Pacific Quest Wilderness Therapy program on the Big Island of Hawaii.  On December 14, 2014, I will run the Honolulu Marathon. My goal is to raise grant money for the Sky’s The Limit Fund organization to provide more students the opportunity to attend Pacific Quest.

Pacific Quest offers holistic therapy to struggling adolescents and young adults. Organic gardens serve as classrooms for learning sustainable life skills: through planting and harvesting a portion of their diet, students learn the importance of proper nutrition and daily movement. Pacific Quest's Sustainable Growth model emphasizes the interconnection between mind, body, and emotional wellness.

One parent describes the impact of this dynamic wellness model on their child: "...Last weekend with our son went better than we could have ever hoped... To see this renewed energy in him is amazing.  He talked a lot about food and nutrition and the effect it has on 'fueling' his body. It was wonderful to hear all that he had learned, and to hear him start to guide his little brothers in subtle ways."

It is my goal to raise grant money to provide more students the opportunity to participate in this unique program. I am reaching out to my community, and committing myself to many 5:00 a.m. runs with a headlamp, because I want to help expand access to Pacific Quest for young people who desperately need help, but cannot afford it. 

 

I would truly appreciate your support as well as “cheers”  via social media!  All donations and funds raised in this campaign will go to Sky's The Limit Fund (www.skysthelimitfund.org), a non-profit organization that “transforms the lives of at-risk youth by providing grants, support, and hope, through wilderness therapy programs and beyond.”
