BENEFITING: BARTHOLOMEW J LAWSON FOUNDATION FOR CHILDREN
ORGANIZER: BARTHOLOMEW J LAWSON FOUNDATION FOR CHILDREN
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
This year I'll be running with Team reachwithin to benefit the amazing BARTHOLOMEW J LAWSON FOUNDATION FOR CHILDREN and its important work to support vulnerable children in Grenada! Please donate and help support this great cause!
reachwithin believe children are best served when nurtured in a loving and supportive environment. Our dedicated marathon runners will help us to continue to provide multi-dimentional programs, designed to improve the health and well-being of vulnerable children in Grenada through wellness programs for both the child and the caregiver. The programs develop social emotional literacy, self confidence and resilience in the child while offering training and support to caregivers to promote positive attachments between child and caregiver.
reachwithin’s Transitional Living Program- designed in collaboration with the Grenadian youth it serves- aims to provide a safety net and strong emotional support system for former residents of Grenada’s care homes, enabling them to transition into self-sufficiency and responsible independent living. In short, the TLP aims to equip former care home residents with valuable life skills so that they can live healthy, productive, violence-free lives as adults.
