GRASSROOT SOCCER wrote -
Grassroot Soccer (GRS) 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 of change in their communities. Since 2002, GRS has reached over 1.9 million young people with critical health information & life skills programs.
It only costs $25 to support one young person through GRS's core program and provide them with access to an HIV test. Together, you can help us reach an additional 6,000 adolescents in 2017!
Why I am doing this -
Aside from Grassroot being an incredible powerful charity that reachs people around the global who need help, this is going to be a my first flat city marathon which I will be properly training for!
The propect of NYC marathon is both exciting and daunting, it is not a true flat marathon as it incorporates a number of hills and bridges along the way.
That being said, I'm looking forward to the challenge.
Your support is greatly appreciated (as ever),
