EVENT: Pittsburgh Marathon 2017
I wouldn't be where I am today if it weren't for my High Schools' sports programs! I have many people to thank especially my coaches, however, it hurts to say that Youth sports are actually in trouble!!
It turns out that BILLIONS not millions but BILLIONS of dollars which used to fund these public school sports have been cut and are continuing to be cut from many school sports programs in recent years across the country!
And it's predicted that 27% of U.S. public high schools could be without sports by 2020.
I researched on the topic and that's why I decided to try to fundraise for this cause, because if it weren't for high school sports I for sure wouldn't be who I am today, and where I am today!
Saving High School sports is the mission of the DICK’S Sporting Goods Foundation to support programs that inspire and enable participation in sports. Through their Sports Matter program, they're making a lasting impact in our communities by giving young athletes the chance to discover a sport they love, and the opportunity to play it and compete in it.
So please help me with this cause! It'll help thousands of kids nation wide!
