THE STORY:

Thanks for visiting this site to learn more about Grassroot Soccer (GRS).  I hope after reading this you will consider contributing to their great work on behalf of at-risk children.  Some of you may remember that I ran last year's NYC Marathon to raise money for GRS.  The outpouing of support was incredible and together we were able to raise over $6,000.  My goal this year is to raise $5,000 and with your help I am confident we will be successful.

For those who don't know about GRS their mission is quite clear - to use the power of soccer to educate, inspire, and mobilize communities to stop the spread of HIV.  They began operations in South Africa in 2006 and have since expanded to other parts of Africa.  To date they have graduated over 500,000 youth from their HIV prevention programs and are well on their way to their goal of 1,000,000 by World Cup 2014.  To think about the positive impact they have had on so many young lives is truly inspiring and I run again this year to act in some small way in support of their goal.

As many of you know I enjoy running but, like everyone else, I struggle to find the time to help serve the community around me.  This opportunity affords me the chance to combine my love of running for a much greater good.  It also serves as a powerful motivator - how hard can I find it to train when the youth served by GRS overcome substantial obstacles each day in their lives.

Thanks again for your time and consideration.  Take care,

Tom
