Off to the races!
April 16, 2017
Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought I'd run a marathon. Let alone the 2017 NYC Marathon. Not many people are given this opportunity and for that I'm grateful.
I'm excited to have some of my closest friends at my side for this event. An incredible group of people where there's no shortage of encouragement motivation and support for each other.
We are honored to have the privilege of running with such a great organization in Grassroot Soccer. We have each pledged to raise $3000 dollars for the foundation and 100% of the money goes directly to support their foundation.
So please consider helping me continue my fundraising efforts by contributing to GRS and ultimately making a difference in a young person's life.
** More about GRS.
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!
