BENEFITING: TEACHING & LEARNING COLLABORATIVE
Hi everyone! As part of my New Years Resolutions I made a goals of giving more to charities and completing a race in 2015. Little did I know Disney has a great program where I can do both at one time. I will be running their Star Wars 5k race April 17th with a nonprofit partner and fundraising for that group. I chose Teaching & Learning Collaborative. Their mission is is to provide innovative, high-quality professional development and support for preK-12 educators in mathematics, science, and technology. I think getting kids interested in STEM is an incredibly important goal and I'm excited to be able to help in any way I can with this organization's mission. Awesome note about TLC's goal they set for runners. It is $314 by March 14th. That's not a coincidence! I need to raise the Pi number by Pi day to meet my goal and be able to run. I thought that was a cute touch :) As for the running, I have never run in my life. I've never been a runner but I've always wanted to be. This is going to help me train and keep my personal fitness goals in mind. I have about 14 weeks to go from sedentary to running a 5k and I know I can do it. So in conclusion, please donate to TLC and if you really want to go the extra mile, message me periodically and ask how the training is going. It'll keep me going and I'd love to hear from everyone! Thanks!
