Help New York Yankees star Curtis Granderson improve inner city education nationwide through grants and the purchasing of necessary supplies  See more

BENEFITING: GRAND KIDS FOUNDATION INCORPORATED

EVENT: 2010 ING New York City Marathon

EVENT DATE: Nov 07, 2010

THE STORY:

Donations to the Grand Kids Foundation will go towards purchasing school supplies for needy families/kids, books and supplies for schools which do not get the funding they always need, establishing inner city baseball programs as well as providing equipment and facilities. A nationwide grant process is being established to fund field trips, art projects, science projects and baseball equipment donations.

The Grand Kids Foundation was founded by MLB All-Star and New York Yankees center fielder Curtis Granderson, who was named the 2009 MLBPA Man of the Year for his philanthropic work.

Both of Curtis' parents served as educators in the Chicago area while he was a child. The importance of education has become the focal point in Curtis' message to the nation's youth, as he is one of only a handful of MLB players with a college degree. Curtis graduated from the University of Illinois-Chicago in 2002 with degrees in Business Marketing and Business Management.

Curtis is also currently MLB's national spokesman for First Lady Michelle Obama's Let's Move campaign, which aims to fight childhood obesity.
