THE STORY:

BLUE ENGINE INC wrote -

"If the track is tough and the hill is rough, THINKING you can just ain’t enough!"

-Shel Silverstein, "The Little Blue Engine"

This quote artfully identifies Blue Engine’s perspective on education; that in order to get over the hill to success students need more than just a positive attitude - they need support and rigor.  Our Blue Engine Teaching Assistants (BETAs) provide this to the students we tutor in high-needs public high schools in New York City (please read more about our mission here).

The proceeds from this event will provide many hours of small-group instruction to identify and support the individual needs of our students. Specifically, with each $20,000 raised we can provide a fellowship to one BETA for one year as he or she spends roughly 1,000 hours tutoring, coordinating college visits and facilitating after-school programs to reach about 100 students.

By viewing this website we know that you support us and ultimately the students we reach, but we suspect that you will need a different kind of support and rigor while you “train” for this race and conquer the hills from the ascent up the Verrazano Bridge to that last push up Central Park. During race day you can count on the Blue Engine team to support you along the way.

As this is our first year sponsoring a team in the ING New York City Marathon 2011 we have a limited number of spots, so please contact info@blueengine.org if you are interested in participating.
