THE STORY:

Dear Teammates, Friends, and Family,

On November 2 I will be running the NYC marathon to raise money for Grassroot Soccer.  My goal is to raise $500,000.  It starts with you. 

Every single donation counts.  In fact, every single donation counts twice; a friend who has visited our programs and ran the marathon for GRS last year has offered to match every donation up to $250,000, doubling our efforts.  Will you help me?

I am running because:

Sport is an incredible way to reach young people – to educate and inspire them.

GRS is leading the way, coupling rigor and focus with innovation and passion, to figure out the very best ways to have the most impact.

HIV is a disease that will be defeated. Young people, the group who have been hardest hit, also represent the greatest force for change.

Almost half of all infections occur in young people.  GRS has mobilized 700,000 would-be victims into informed and empowered actors in the effort to end HIV.  

HIV/AIDS is the leading cause of death worldwide for women aged 15-44.

GRS destroys harmful gender norms that fuel this tragedy by identifying and training inspired young women (our “coaches”) to run girl-only soccer leagues with attached life skills and HIV education programs. These programs change and empower girls.

As a 13 year old graduate in Bulawayo wrote:  “Doctors and scientists are doing their best. The solution is in our hands. Now let’s get out there.”  

Thank you for your support,

Tommy
