30 YEARS RUNNING THE PEACHTREE ROAD RACE
Welcome to my Peachtree Road Race fundraising page for Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Metro Atlanta!! I am celebrating my 30th year running the Peachtree by raising money for a great organization that provides one-on-one mentoring for underpriveldged children. I have been on the board of Big Brothers, Big Sisters for a over two years now and am so impressed with the great work they do. The numbers around the kids in our program are quite amazing -
- 98% of high school seniors graduate on time
- 88% pursue post - secondary education
- 98% are promoted to the next grade
- 99% avoid the juvenile justice system
With over 600 boys and 200 girls waiting for a mentor that cares every dollar raised will help fill that gap. Big Brothers, Big Sisters truly changes lives for many that have such long odds of success. I would like all children to have the opportunity to reach their full potential like my son Matthew pictured with me running the Mayor's 5k on the 5th runway at Atlanta Airport last year. Please help us continue our mission helping children succeed in our community.
Thank you for reading my page and considering supporting me -
