THE STORY:

I am so excited to be running the 2011 ING New York City Marathon as a part of Team Granderson! I'm hoping to raise at least $3,000 and hopefully more for the Grand Kids Foundation, which was founded by New York Yankees centerfielder Curtis Granderson.

His foundation helps fund educational initiatives nationwide through a grant process as well as promotes the game of baseball in the nation's inner cities. Projects funded currently are art and science projects, educational field trips and language software.

As a high school teacher in New York City’s Washington Heights, I see firsthand the continual reduction in school funding. Grand Kids Foundation is a lifeline to schools, providing grants for education programs and supplies that goes directly into individual schools and districts. Also, the Foundation functions with zero operating costs, which means every penny donated goes directly into educating our nation’s youth. So please help donate to Team Granderson!

For more information on the Grand Kids Foundation, visit www.grandkidsfoundation.org.

No matter how big or small, every donation helps. If I raise the most money, I will be able to bring Granderson to my school, which would be a fantastic experience for the students. Thanks for the support and I hope to see many of you cheering me on when I'm blazing down the streets of New York on November 6th!
