Dear Family & Friends, Now that marathon weekend has come and gone, I wanted to thank each of you for your support of Cristo Rey New York  See more
Matt Funk

THE STORY:

This fall, I will be running the New York City Marathon on behalf of Cristo Rey New York High School, which provides competitive college-prep education and corporate work-study programs for low-income families in East Harlem. I am so grateful to have been given the gift of a strong and formative education, and am even more grateful that I have the good health and relationships to pay these opportunities forward by supporting Cristo Rey.

The average family income of a Cristo Rey student is $29,000, which adjusted for New York City living expenses leaves an available income of negative $9,000. Cristo Rey gives these families the opportunity to provide a quality education and better outcomes for their children—98% of Cristo Rey's 770 graduates have enrolled in a four-year college, and 99% of the Class of 2017 will be enrolling in four-year colleges this fall. This includes my alma mater, Georgetown University, and my sister’s alma mater, the University of Michigan.

By running the New York City Marathon for Cristo Rey, I have pledged to raise $2,500, all of which will go directly to the cost of educating these students. On top of this, it is my goal to raise an additional $800, for each of the miles I will run in preparation over the next three months.

Please consider making a donation here to support this incredible school—no matter the amount, every dollar counts towards Cristo Rey's students and their futures. Thank you for your support!

Giving of oneself (and every breadth) to a good cause, yet out of the limelight, is a true mark of charity. Keep it up, Matt - your true worth shines through it all. 2 months ago
