April Busch & Billy Busch
Brother & Sister in two different states training together for a feat that many in their lifes will never accomplish... As we go through the many miles of running, builiding up our strength and edurance, we do it with Joy as we think about Grassroot Soccer, and the many lives they affect. The organization uses the love of the game of soccer to educate youth across Africa about HIV/AIDS. As a former soccer player (me and my brother both!!!), and a student in the midst of pursuing a public health degree, this is an organization that speaks volumes. The work that they do in incredibly inspiring!! I can only ask for just a small donation, if it saves one life, then you have made a difference!

For Billy this will be Marathon #3 and what better way than to raise some money for a great cause like Grassroot Soccer. Joined by Sister April, who will be making their first crack at the gruleing 26.2 mile journey and with plenty of support from friends and family (who will be on the streets of Manhattan cheering). Our goal is to raise $10,000 so donate to a great cause, so please donate, as every dollar will help!
