BENEFITING: FUND FOR PUBLIC SCHOOLS INC
EVENT DATE: Nov 04, 2012
I know, I know, you are all probably thinking, "why on earth is Jeremy raising money for his NYC Marathon Run when he fundraises for a living?!" Well, I tell you why, because any opportunity I have to bring more funds and resources to Public Education, you can bet I will! I hope you will help me reach my goal to raise $10,000 for The Fund for Public Schools. Yes, a bold goal, but you know me - I'm bold. I promise I will complete the NYC Marathon, just as I did twice with Chicago's Marathon.
So why do I need your support? Well, I believe that education is the core to a truly better world. Educating others will make for more engaged citizenry and robust global economy. Also, by educating early and giving our schools the resources they need to educate well, we create an opportunity for all to be life long learners. One thing I have learned for certain is that education goes beyond the school's walls and graduation.
The Fund for Public Schools is helping to fulfill the New York City Department of Education's (DOE) goal for all students to achieve. More important, and this is especially for you non-New Yorkers, the funding and resources provided by The Fund to NYC DOE not only dramatically impacts NYC schools, but the learnings and achievements inform school districts nationwide. With the largest student and teacher population (1.1 Million students and 75,000 teachers) NYC serves as an exemplar for all. After all, if we can make it here we can make it anywhere!
We have made great strides in Public Education, but we have much more to accomplish. Please help me ensure that The Fund can help the NYC DOE move a step closer to helping all students become college and career ready!
Any gift amount is appreciated and I sincerely thank you for your support of me, The Fund, NYC schools and EDUCATION!
