BENEFITING: GRASSROOT SOCCER
ORGANIZER: GRASSROOT SOCCER
EVENT DATE: Nov 03, 2013
Thank you for visiting my page. As many of you know, I trained and fundraised extensively last year in preparation for the NYC Marathon, which was abruptly cancelled following Superstorm Sandy in October/November 2012. With that said, let me be clear that anyone who donated last year, your donations were put to good use by Grassroot Soccer. I was able to raise $2,245 in 2012. This year, I have set up my 2013 page, and I am looking to raise $1,255 for a grand total of $3,500. Obviously, it would be great if we can raise more than that.

This is our fifth year as an Official Charity Partner of the ING NYC Marathon! We are honored to be a part of this great race and have a team of 75 athletes joining us to fight HIV and AIDS.
Grassroot Soccer (GRS) has graduated over 600,000 youth through our HIV/AIDS education program. GRS is moving forward with the official goal of reaching 1 million youth educated and empowered by World Cup 2014.
Our Marathon runners are key to helping us reach the 1 million by 2014 goal. With every step, every training run, every contribution they secure we are getting closer to an HIV-free generation!
