BENEFITING: BROOKFIELD CHRISTIAN SCHOOL INC
Small, private schools are continually challenged with providing students with the latest technology in the classroom. Often, budgets are spent keeping existing equipment running, which prevents organizations from projecting technology initiatives out several years.
In light of these challenges, I am dedicating my running efforts this year to:
- the Lord,
- to help raise awareness and funds for the Brookfield Christian School technology program, so we can better provide forward-looking technology to our students.
Specifically, funds raised through these efforts will go to:
- Thin-client technology and Remote Access
- Acquisition of Smart Boards
- Purchasing iPads
- Online coursework and applications
- Offering more technology-related resources and training
After starting running in April, 2011 at the age of 42, I was blessed to run in a number of 5K's and a 10K. In 2012, I completed a 5K, 5 half marathons, and two marathons, and logged 906 miles.
This year, in 2013, I would like to finish 4 marathons (26.2 miles, each.)
I have served as the head of the BCS Technology Committee since being elected to the Board in 2011, and, after getting a great BCS baseball cap, I'm excited to feature it in several races.
Would you consider joining the team, and logging some miles in an upcoming race?
If you've never run a race before, now might be the time! Your body may surprise you! (just check with your doctor first!)
Might you consider making a donation to BCS at a rate of $.25 , $.50, $1.00, or more, per mile, run in races, towards our technology efforts for students?
I am presently signed up for:
