EVENT DATE: Mar 20, 2016
I am excited to announce I will be running in the NYC Half Marathon on March 20, 2016 on behalf of the East Harlem Tutorial Program (EHTP)! I have been volunteering as a Youth Mentor and Tutor since August 2015 with EHTP's Road to Success program. EHTP is a non-profit, after-school program, offering fun and educational after-school activities for East Harlem students. Our mission is to give students the tools they need to prepare for high school and college. It's a great organization to be a part of, I feel lucky each week as I watch the students learn and grow with confidence.
In conjunction with running the marathon, I've committed to raising $2000.00 for EHTP by the day of the race! I've already been training hard and have set a goal of running the 13.1 miles of the race in under 2 hours on March 20th.
I would be truly honored if you could sponsor me with any amount you can afford. Every little bit helps! No amount is too small (or too big?!) :)

EHTP began in 1958 as a children’s reading group in a local resident’s living room; it has since grown into a multi-site after-school program for traditional public school students and a public charter schools operator focused on significantly increasing the college graduation rate in East Harlem.
