BENEFITING: GRASSROOT SOCCER
ORGANIZER: GRASSROOT SOCCER
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
My 26.2 Mile WHY is nestled at the heart of what I do every single day. Serving children and their communities is what makes my heart sing.
I am running this marathon and raising money in hopes of raising hope for children around the world. Every dollar donated will help me do that.
Grassroot Soccer is an adolescent health organization that uses the power of soccer to educate, inspire, and mobilize young people to lead healthier lives and be agents for change in their communities.
This year, GRS is hoping to raise $150,000 to support its life-saving health education and empowerment programs in Africa and beyond. Every $15 provides another young person with a fun, interactive, and safe space to learn about critical health issues, including HIV.
Join us in bringing an end to the HIV epidemic by starting with the young people who have the power to end it.
