Hi all -
As many of you know, I have been involved with Minds Matter since I moved to the City and it is very close to my heart. I will be running the marathon this year in support of - and to raise funds for - this incredible organization.
Donations of all sizes are appreciated!...As an added incentive, whomever makes the largest donation can select the baseball hat (your choice, I'll buy) that I will run the marathon in on Nov 6. So open those wallets, and those hearts, and help a sister out.
Volunteering with Minds Matter is one of the most rewarding parts of my life, which is why I happily give up most of my Saturday mornings to do it. I've attached a few photos of my Minds Matter crew of mentors and mentees. More specific info is below for those of you that have interest.

The mission of Minds Matter of NYC is to transform the lives of accomplished high school students from low-income families by broadening their dreams and preparing them for college success.
We utilize the power of 500 adult volunteers to serve over 170 students in their pursuit of a college education through mentoring, writing and critical thinking instruction, and SAT prep. Since our inception in 1991, the effectiveness of Minds Matter has been affirmed- 100% of our students have been accepted to four-year colleges and universities.
