BENEFITING: Literacy Partners, Inc.
ORGANIZER: Literacy Partners, Inc.
EVENT DATE: May 07, 2017
On Sunday, May 7, 2017, Brook and I will be riding rain or shine through the streets of New York City in the 2017 Five Boro Bike Tour - I'll be "Biking for Books" to support Literacy Partners that focuses on parent education to close the achievement gap among low-income and immigrant children. Brook will be supporting the lifesaving mission of Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières' (MSF's). We have re-commited this year to supporting causes that advance decency, reason and compassion.
As an NYCDOE public school teacher, Literacy Partners is a particularly important and personal organization for me as a majority of my students read below grade level, are the first in their families to graduate high school and come from backgrounds similar to the focus of Literacy Partners. All funds raised in support of the Literacy Partners support the free classes provided to help low-income immigrant parents learn English so that they can make sure their children are prepared to start school and set the stage for a lifetime of success.
THANK YOU for your support and for getting onvolved. Every little bit helps and is greatly appreciated.
