BENEFITING: Teach for America, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Sep 02, 2013
Inspired by our DSST Running Club kids' commitment to community service this year, I decided to push myself to finally run a full marathon (the American Discovery Trail Marathon on September 2nd - http://www.adtmarathon.com/) and deepen my own commitment to service while doing so. Along the way (and a little bit after), I will aim to run at least 700 miles while raising money for Teach for America. This organization is near and dear to me because they opened my eyes to the educational inequity present in our country and my two years in the program ultimately resulted in my choice to spend my life giving kids the educational opportunities they need in order to thrive. Thanks for considering donating to my cause!
