BENEFITING: Harlem RBI
ORGANIZER: Harlem RBI
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2011
I am setting off on my 10th marathon (and 2nd running “barefoot”) on November 6th in New York City. To celebrate, I have joined Team Harlem RBI to raise money for their unique programming. HRBI uses baseball as a tool to build leadership skills, respect, and confidence in inner city youths; focusing them on the goal of high school graduation and college matriculation. Currently, they have a 97% graduation rate, a 94% college-acceptance rate, and recently began building their own charter school in Harlem.
Remarkable! To learn more about this fabulous group, visit www.harlemrbi.org
This is the final push! Nobody embodies the spirit of giving and leadership like Pittsburgh favorite,#21, Roberto Clemente. In honor of him and the good folks at HarlemRBI, I am asking 175 people to donate $21 to me @ http://bit.ly/harlemrbi and I am also going to run 21 miles each of the next 4 Sundays leading up to the marathon on November 6th. I hope you can donate to help me out!
