I am working to raise funds for Codman Academy Foundation's Wellness Program. Codman is a 501(c)(3) charity organization that runs the Codman Academy Public School, a public charter school for grades 9-12. Students attend school six days a week, with an extended day Mondays through Fridays. 100% of Codman's graduates have been accepted to college. The program is holistic, addressing student's physical and mental health needs along with academics. Most of Codman's students, chosen by lottery, live in Dorchester, Roxbury or Mattapan, Massachusetts. Home languages include Armenian, Cantonese Chinese, Cape Verdean Credole, English, Gujarati, Haitian Creole, Igbo and Spanish.

The Wellness program is an integral part of the holistic approach. All students particpate in the Wellness program through classes, membership on an athletic team or completing independent study credit elswhere.
Codman Academy is a Junk Food Free Campus. This means that only healthy food is allowed on campus. Food that is high in saturated fat, trans fat, sugar, salt, calories, and/or has little or no nutritional value is not allowed on campus. Codman takes the Wellness aspect of their education program seriously.
The funds raised here will directly benefit the Codman Academy's Wellness Program which funds all of their health and wellness initiatives.
