THE STORY:

Hi Friends and Family!

On April 20, I will be running my first marathon to support Jumpstart, a national early education non-profit that recruits and trains volunteers to build early language and literacy skills in low-income communities. I CAN’T WAIT!

As a member of the Jumpstart Young Professionals Board for the past two years, I’ve seen firsthand the incredible work Jumpstart is doing across the country, and especially here in the Boston area, to prepare children for success in Kindergarten and to close the achievement gap before it begins.

And now, Jumpstart has given me two amazing opportunities:

  1. Run the Boston Marathon with a community of like-minded and supportive runners. Finishing a marathon has been on my bucket list for the last decade. I have never run even close to this distance, and I was looking for the type of encouragement and experience that would help me prepare mentally and physically to go the distance. Enter Coach Rick and the Marathon Coalition of Charity Runners. Check.
  2. Bring a high-quality early literacy program to 10 preschool classrooms in need by raising $10,000. Research has shown that early education, when done right, is the most cost-effective way to close the achievement gap. I have promised to raise $10,000 before the marathon so that 10 preschool classrooms in low-income neighborhoods can receive the life-changing early education needed to enter Kindergarten ready to succeed.

To do this, I need your help. Please click on the link to donate. Thanks to a generous matching donor, every dollar you donate goes twice as far toward helping children and reaching my goal!

I really appreciate your support in helping me achieve this life milestone. You'll be with me at the finish line!

Many thanks,

Rachel
