BENEFITING: AFS INTERCULTURAL PROGRAMS INC
EVENT DATE: Nov 07, 2010
On November 7 2010, I will be running the ING New York City Marathon. Please join me in the running 26.2 miles by raising funds for the AFS International Diversity Scholarships!
For the past 4 years, I have been working with AFS, an amazing nonprofit that provides cultural exchange opportunities to young people worldwide. The AFS International Diversity Scholarships supports talented young individuals who would otherwise not have the financial means to embark on a cultural exchange program.
As a student, I have benefitted from educational opportunities made possible by scholarships, whether it was my first student exchange to Japan or pursuing my higher education in the United States. These experiences were truly invaluable periods in my life, and I hope to "pay it forward" by making the same opportunities possible for others.

Thank you so much for your support, and I promise you a nice, sweaty hug if you'd meet me at the end of the race.
