BENEFITING: GRASSROOT SOCCER
ORGANIZER: GRASSROOT SOCCER
EVENT DATE: Nov 03, 2013
Every once in a while you stumble across a group of people, a cause, an organization, that you know is doing it right. For me, that's Grassroot Soccer, and the 2013 NYC Marathon is my way -- and hopefully yours, too -- of supporting their fight against HIV.
Working with GRS in Zambia from 2010-2011, I saw first hand how effectively and powerfully Grassroot Soccer mobilized entire communities. GRS provides locals, both youth and adults, with the skills and tools necessary to overcome the HIV epidemic. And it's working! So be a part of the solution, or at the very least give me some motivation to wade through a crowd of 45,000 people for 26 miles.
