THE STORY:

Andy Suiter wrote -

Dear Enjoy Friends, Kyle Jutte, Frank Cho and I are running in the San Francisco Marathon next Sunday (7/31). It has been an amazing experience training over the last 7 months. Thank you for putting up with us every morning talking about our training and "healthy eating habits” (not all that consistent)... Awhile back we decided to run the marathon for a great cause, and we have found an incredible non-profit organization, Aim High, right here in the Bay Area. We want to raise at least $2000 dollars through your support, and the support of friends and family. Why $2000 (or about $8 per Enjoy employee!)? This is how much it would cost to change a low income middle schooler's life by sending him or her to Aim High's summer learning and enrichment program. Here is an example of the impact Aim High has made on one of their past students: "Before Aim High, Allan was shy and didn’t have many friends. He was bullied and struggled with his identity. He preferred books to conversation. He kept to himself. In sixth grade, Allan enrolled in Aim High, an experience that he says changed his life, both academically and socially. At Aim High, Allan met welcoming teachers who made school feel more relevant and new experiences seem less daunting. He improved in math and science, subjects that were once difficult, and learned how to ask questions when he needed help. He also learned about college. For the first time, at Aim High, Allan realized college was attainable. Most importantly, Allan’s teachers showed him how to embrace his individuality. Their support helped him find the courage to come out as gay. “My teachers showed me to love who I am, and not to be ashamed of myself,” Allan says. Now a thriving 10th grader, Allan aspires to become the first person in his family to attend college." Aim High’s summer program makes a big difference: 97% of Aim High alumni graduate high school on time and enroll in college, compared to 49% of low-income students nationally. So essentially, your contribution would double the chances of a young student like Allan to achieving their dream of heading to college, and on a trajectory to a great career.
