BENEFITING: INWOOD ACADEMY FOR LEADERSHIP CHARTER SCHOOL
ORGANIZER: INWOOD ACADEMY FOR LEADERSHIP CHARTER SCHOOL
EVENT DATE: Mar 19, 2017
Welcome to my fundraiser. While this will be my second NYC half marathon, it's my first fundraiser.
I teach Living Environment at Inwood Academy and use subject matters my high school students can relate to, such as running. We just finished a section on how to be happy and healthy through the lens of a runner! We discussed how your body reacts to stress and why it begins to shut down. We talked about nutrition for runners, and what/when to drink during the marathon race and why it makes a difference; either creating stress on your body or reducing it by making the right choices.
Needless to say, my students at some point in their life have run and certainly, most have had more than their share of sugary drinks.
This race means a lot to my students. We will continue to discuss my run, how I am preparing, why they should take a run once or twice a week, and finally, post-race, see how our bodies are reacting to this activity.
Please donate to my fundraiser. I want to raise $2,000 for my school so I'll need all the help I can get to reach this goal.
Now, about Inwood Academy. It is my first year teaching at this amazing school. Every student feels welcomed and it's clear to me that every faculty member truly cares for these kids and the students know this!
Please join us as we strive to ensure that all 800 of our middle and high school students have everything they need to succeed in college and beyond.
Inwood Academy is a trailblazer in the New York charter school environment. We welcome every student who applies and is accepted via our lottery. We meet students where they are, whether they speak little to no English or if they are four years behind their peers when they enroll with us in the fifth grade.
Please support my fundraiser and join us in making a difference, one child at a time.
