THE STORY:

This winter, I’ll be lacing up my sneakers on a number of cold, snowy mornings in training for this year’s Boston Marathon to benefit Esperanza Academy, a tuition free, Episcopal middle school for girls in Lawrence, MA.  I could not be more excited for the opportunity to be running Boston this year for this outstanding school!    

As I’m finishing week four of marathon training, I’ve already had three major snow storms and a number of below zero runs - according to the Farmer’s Almanac, below-normal temperatures and above-normal snowfall is something I’ll just have to get used to during my training.

But these obstacles are trivial compared to what girls at Esperanza have overcome.  Founded in 2006, the school now serves 65 students, who all qualify for free or reduced-price lunch under the National School Lunch Program.  For 91% of students, English is their second language.  Esperanza Academy operates under an extended-day (9 ½ hours), extended year (11 month) program, providing students opportunities in academics, athletics, arts, community service, and cultural, spiritual, and social-skills programs.  Last spring, 100% of the first class to graduate from Esperanza Academy (the class of 2009) went on to graduate from high school.      

Having just completed my first week as a full time student teacher, I truly appreciate the value of a strong middle school education in supporting these girls not just in school, but throughout their lives.  Your support of these girls lasts well beyond the middle school years, as students leave Esperanza with confidence and skills that will guide them throughout life. 

Any and all support would be more than appreciated. Esperanza Academy is completely privately funded and relies on donations such as yours. Thank you, in advance, for your support!
