BENEFITING: FRIENDS OF RESILIENCY FOR LIFE INC

EVENT: 2017 Boston Marathon

EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017

Ardria Cucinotta

THE STORY:

I have been blessed with the opportunity to run the Boston Marathon with Team Framingham in 2017. In addition to the intense training between now and April 17th, I am focused and committed to raising funds for a unique organization that enables high-risk Framingham students to thrive in a challenging and supportive community that values individualized attention and parent partnerships.

The underlying philosophy of RFL is that all students can succeed given adequate support. Students in the program have demonstrated year after year that high expectations combined with a supportive environment create positive outcomes. RFL students will overcome social, emotional and academic challenges, growing into adults who value excellence, respect and community.

Resiliency for Life, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization (www.resiliencyforlife.org) has an unusual funding model. RFL receives about $200,000 from the town but needs to raise about $250,000, independently . This comes from grants, foundations and especially generous individuals, and the amount has increased as pilot programs at the three middle schools in town over the past two years have commenced. The money raised goes towards things like after school tutors, field trips to visit and get motivated by seeing colleges, therapy copays, snacks so that students can focus on learning rather than hunger, food for parent meetings and school supplies.

Two students have appeared on the A+ Segment on Channel 5 news over the past 3 years and here are their videos:

here has even been a graduate appear on this season's Project Runway! Here's a little bio they did on the TV show: http://www.mylifetime.com/shows/project-runway/cast/nathalia-jmag

We also have graduates working in sales at SAP, accounting and finance at Mathworks. Please feel free to reach out if you need any information about the program. Thank you very much for considering a small donation to Resiliency for Life - every little bit helps these students reach their full potential!
