Thank you for taking the time to visit my campaign page. This year I will be running the NYC Marathon to support the nonprofit Change for Kids (CFK). This amazing organization provides educational opportunities to under-resourced public elementary schools throughout the city.
Thanks to CFK, more than 4,000 students in low-income communities have been able to receive the quality education that they deserve. On a personal note, having served as a Sunday School teacher to inner city children, and a volunteer at the Salvation Army’s afterschool programs, I can attest that there is no better feeling than seeing the gratitude on a student’s face when they receive something as simple as a new backpack, or life-changing as support and encouragement from a complete stranger.
100% of the donations received will go to Change for Kids, and aid in the purchase of textbooks, classroom materials, and support the expansion of educational programs in the arts, health, science and literacy.
This fundraiser is important to me because I genuinely want to see these students have the same opportunities as anyone else. I have set a goal of $5,000. Every cent helps these students get one step closer to having a new music program, receiving a free backpack filled with pencils, erasers and notebooks, and getting the quality education and support that they deserve, to know that they can truly do anything that they set their minds on.
I cannot begin to explain how appreciative I will be to anyone that helps support and share this cause. Please join me in helping these students, and letting them know that they have a world of support behind them!
