BENEFITING: WEINGART CENTER ASSOCIATION
EVENT DATE: Jun 09, 2013
Alex Chick is a responsible and community-conscious fifth grader who wants to inspire change in the world. Change starts and ends with an individual’s actions, so Alex and his family approached the Weingart Center in Los Angeles and showed us that he is ready to help to break the cycle of homelessness.
Alex's "Inspiring Change Project" is supporting the Weingart Center in two phases:
[Phase 1] Alex recently finished organizing a school-wide Toiletry and Clothing drive for the clients who live at the Weingart Center. Once the drive was complete, Alex received over TEN large boxes worth of donated goods, which were delivered to the Weingart Center the first week of March.
[Phase 2] Alex will compete in two triathlons with Tri Events (http://www.trievents.com/). The first triathlon will be on May 11th, and the second triathlon will occur on June 8th. When Alex was not collecting donations at his school, he was training with his dad to physically prepare for the run. Alex will sprint, swim, and bike a distance totaling over 23 miles!
Alex is an inspiration to all of us. Would you like to encourage Alex to finish his triathlons? Of course you do! Alex will be running to raise awareness about the Weingart Center, and if you make a donation today you will help raise general funds to keep our programs and services alive and well. We would like to see companies that want to be more involved in the community... Coaches, teachers, parents, family members, and friends that inspire change... Volunteers with positive attitudes who want to be the change they see in the world!
Alex Chick is calling on you to help him achieve his dream of a healthier, happier, and safer homeless community in Downtown Los Angeles. The Weingart Center helps empower and transform lives while combating poverty every day. Now is your chance to contribute!
Your cash donation will help raise General Funds for the Weingart Center. As we all live in a world of constant change, general support gives the Weingart Center the flexibility to use the funds where they can be most effective, such as in areas where funding gaps exist due to budget cuts from our public and private supporters.
