Maritza Rodriguez Nieves Family
Our 2nd annual fun run will benefit Goethe Elementary's unique garden program called "The Solutionaries," which is both about growing plants and foods and also about growing and nourishing a respectful relationship to all living and non-living things in this world. Stories about plant origins and their use among ancient civilizations and cultures to the present day tangibly link and reinforce academic subjects of reading and math, science and social studies. Solutionaries are visionaries who use empathy and rationale to critically think about solutions to 21st century problems. In addition to ensuring that the Solutionaries program continues to fund an instructor, Goethe's 2nd Annual Fun Run will ensure the expansion of only 1 of 2 thriving food forests on CPS grounds, and all other Health and Wellness related initiatives!!
Your donation, earmarked for Goethe Fun Run, will show up on your bank or credit card statement as a charge from NeighborSpace, the nonprofit land trust that protects 112 community gardens across Chicago. It is through NeighborSpace's non-profit status and fiscal agency that Goethe Fun Run will be able to use your tax-deductible donation.
