1 in 4 students don't graduate. We want to change that. Help our runners cross the finish line so we can help more students cross the stage.
City Year is a national education-based nonprofit that helps high-need ubran schools keep students in school and on track to graduate. With your support, we can continue to provide thousands of students the extra care and support they need to succeed.
Even though I've always enjoyed running, what motivated me to decide to take on the challenge of running the LA marathon this upcoming year was the fact that I would be able to fundraise for the school that I work in. Unfortunately, during the few months that I have been working at Compton Avenue Elementary I have seen how underfunded the school that we serve in is. The school that I work in isn't only understaffed, but they have very little resources to offer to students because they have no funds to help them. CityYear is an educaiton-based non-profit organization that helps students in high-need urban schools graduate. So I am reaching out to family and friends for help, so that with your support we can help our students.
