Joe Von Bokern
In recent years, I've had the pleasure of working with Mirror Image Arts, a non-profit group that travels to elementary schools and middle schools in Colorado to facilitate interactive theatre workshops with students. The workshops focus on bullying prevention, with the belief that students can find their voice in their community and go from being bystanders to being up-standers!
The time I spent with this organization was incredible. I loved watching young people surprise themselves with how much they enjoyed getting on their feet and exploring scenes about empathy and problem solving. The majority of the schools we visited were in lower income areas, and many of the students had never had the opportunity to enjoy this kind of arts-based programming. Mirror Image Arts gives them the chance to not only write and perform, but also to discover how much of an impact they can have in the world around them.
In 2018, Mirror Image Arts is once again an official charity partner of the 2018 Kaiser Permanente Colfax Marathon! They're joining forces with Denver's most popular springtime running event to raise money and awareness for the organization, in the hope that they can reach more schools than ever before in the coming year.
At this year's race, I’ll be rejoining my fellow actors/nerds on the Red Shirt Running Team to compete in the 5-Person Marathon Relay.
So I'm here today asking for your support. A tax-deductible gift would go a long way toward helping Mirror Image Arts reach more schools and communities than ever before. If you can help, please visit my running donation page at: https://www.crowdrise.com/joevonbokern. Your gift will once again go a long way in helping us ensure a better future for Colorado youth, and will also give my legs an extra boost of strength for the race.
Thank you so much, and remember: your voice matters!
