Steven Khoury's Fundraiser:

First Marathon for United Way of Central Carolinas

THE STORY:

I recently became more involved with the United Way by serving on the United Way Committee within my firm, Dixon Hughes Goodman LLP. By serving on the committee, I was able to understand the struggles and needs that were affecting my new community, along with the town I grew up in. As many folks know, I also have a passion for running; therefore, I signed up for my very first marathon, which will be taking place in October of this year. I always told myself the only way I would run a full marathon is if I ran for a charity that I am passionate about. Therefore, I went back and forth on which marathon I should run due to the charities connected with each race. Finally, I came to the conclusion that I would independently sign up for a race and raise money for the United Way of the Central Carolinas, which is an organization that positively impacts the community I live in every day. A donation to this fundraiser page will go directly to the United Way. A simple donation to the United Way is more impactful than you may think, especially to students in Mecklenburg County and surrounding counties who are enrolled in Title I schools. For those of you who do not know much about Title I Schools – a Title I school is considered a high-poverty school, where students are behind academically and at risk of falling behind. Simply put, these schools lack the resources that we all probably once took for granted, such as textbooks. There are currently over 75 Title I schools in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School system, and surprisingly, most of them are in our backyards! Over the past couple of years, I have seen the resources Title I schools are greatly in need of. A donation to the United Way will help fund agencies such as: A Child’s Place, Academic Learning Center, Communities in Schools of Charlotte-Mecklenburg and many more. These donations will directly fund the services needed in schools such as: tutoring, purchase of instructional equipment, materials and supplies, parental involvement activities, professional development, and pre-kindergarten programs! Therefore, as I train for the next six months for my first marathon, I challenge everyone to donate to the United Way of the Central Carolinas! All the Best, Steven
