BENEFITING: GRASSROOT SOCCER
ORGANIZER: GRASSROOT SOCCER
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
I am honored to run my first marathon on behalf of Grassroot Soccer who has been fighting AIDS in Africa and beyond for ten years. GRS uses the power of soccer to teach teens to lead healthier lives. So far, GRS has reached two million kids in 50 countries.
When I was four-years-old, I lost my uncle and godfather, Klein, to AIDS. And my uncle John has been fighting AIDS for 25 years. AIDS has devastated my family, so I’m excited to support GRS in their efforts to end the HIV epidemic.
I would appreciate your support at any level. Every $15 provides another young person with a fun, interactive and safe space to learn about critical health issues like HIV. GRS programs are rigorously evaluated and proven to work. Thanks so much for your consideration!
