EVENT DATE: Nov 07, 2010
On Sunday, November 7, a dedicated group of supporters will run the ING NYC Marathon to help raise critical funds for Groundwork programs. Known as Team Groundwork, each member has decided to share the personal triumph of running a marathon with Groundwork by committing to raise $2,500 for the organization.
Join our effort!
Founded in 2002, Groundwork helps neighbors build powerful communities. We identify small neighborhoods, typically public housing developments and the blocks that surround them, and work with community members and institutions to provide high-quality educational programs and support services to the children and families who live there. Our after-school and summer programs for children give them the skills and confidence they need to become engaged citizens. Our work experience and college preparation programs for teenagers teach youth to become leaders while guiding them to success in academics and in life. Our programs for adults offer parents and other community members the resources they need to support their families and build organized community power.
We believe that this combination of education, support and empowerment helps transform families and communities by ensuring that the young people enter and complete college.
