BENEFITING: Td Club Foundation
The Rise School of Dallas located in the Moody Family YMCA is a nonprofit preschool for children with Down syndrome, other learning disabilities, and for those without. In the 17 years that the school has been in operation, it has received national recognition and made a significant difference in the lives of over 180 graduates and their families by helping them integrate successfully into their community. Currently there are 60 children enrolled who continue to need your help! Only 40% of the funds needed to operate the school come from tuition. The remaining 60% is raised through events like the Rise & Shine Run. Please help us give these children the “jump start” they need in life to become proud citizens of this society. In 2016, over 100 companies sponsored the Rise & Shine Run. Of those companies, 45 had tents at our Post Party with a sponsorship level of Bronze, Silver, Gold, or Platinum! Over $400,000 was raised last year with 90% going directly to benefit the children at the Rise School. We are asking you to help us meet our 2017 goal of $450,000. The Run is our biggest fundraiser of the year and we appreciate your support! The 18th Annual Rise & Shine Run to benefit the Rise School of Dallas will be held on Sunday, April 30th at 12:00pm. Your participation and generosity are very important in keeping this wonderful tradition going! The 2017 Run will once again be held at Reverchon Park on Maple Avenue, and the Sunday afternoon format is a great way for companies and families to come out and enjoy the fun!
