BENEFITING: EDUCATING FOR FREEDOM IN SCHOOLS
EVENT DATE: Jan 18, 2014
I, (Talia Johnson) will be running in the 100 mile Ultra Marathon on January 18, 2014, in Wesley Chapel, Florida! This is in an effort to raise money for the Educating For Freedom In Schools Program in Kalamazoo, Michigan. It is one of the many programs started by the Children's Defense Fund Freedom Schools Program, that targets disadvantaged children. The afterschool program focuses on literacy, social justice, health and wellness, parental involvement and intergenerational development.
All children, regardless of their socioeconomic background, deserve to be encouraged to pursue their dreams. The Educating for Freedom In Schools program supports this belief, and actively strives to make it a reality. Your pledges/donations for every mile I complete would be GREATLY appreciated!!
