THE STORY:

Why am I running in the Boston Marathon to support Gronk Nation Youth Foundation?

Has anyone else realized that youth today are getting less motivated?  Unable to communicate face to face?  Not able to grasp the TEAM concept?  Gronk Nation Youth Foundation is taking steps to change this!

When I was growing up, after-school sports were available to me and my friends, at no extra cost to our families.  There were recreation activities in the evenings at different school gyms, again at no extra cost to our families.  Today, it is expensive for children to get involved in sports or recreation activities, often, VERY EXPEN$IVE!

This financial burden on families is a contributing factor to today’s youth being less active.  Kids come home after school and immediately head for the “screens” – they play video games, spend time on FaceBook, text, and tweet!  In addition to being less active, their social skills are suffering!  Often, these kids don’t know how to properly behave in common social situations.  They struggle to maintain conversations; they are quiet and withdrawn.

The Gronk Nation Youth Foundation is an organization dedicated to inspiring and supporting youth to reach their maximum potential by empowering them to be positively involved in sports, community activities, education, and fitness.  Their mission is to help youth stay actively involved in school and sports and provide them with the tools needed to help them follow their dreams and live a happy and more successful life.

I believe in Gronk Nation Youth Foundation’s mission and think it’s time to reinvest in our youth today - after all, they are our tomorrow!   What better way for me to support their mission than to be part of a TEAM running the 2014 Boston Marathon?  I RUN, you DONATE, today’s youth WINS!!!

Please be part of my team by donating to the Gronk Nation Youth Foundation, under my name: http://www.crowdrise.com/GronkNation2014BostonMarathon/fundraiser/LizRichard

Thank you in advance for your support.
