BENEFITING: MINDS MATTER

EVENT: Boston Marathon 2014

EVENT DATE: Apr 21, 2014

Connie Shieh

THE STORY:

This coming April I will be running the Boston Marathon. This has been a personal dream of mine for the last ten years. 

However, I will be running this race for many more than myself. I will be running on behalf of the students of the Los Angeles chapter of Minds Matter.

Minds Matter is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to transform the lives of accomplished high school students from low-income families by broadening their dreams and preparing them for college success.

Low-income students face many challenges when applying for university. Minds Matter provides a rigorous program of tutoring and mentoring, preparing our students with the skills they need to succeed in today's competitive college and university system.

We guide our students every step of the way through the admissions process, and help their families navigate the complicated process of applying for scholarships and financial aid.

Your donations help fund our program, providing valuable resources such as one-on-one tutoring and SAT test preparation. You will also help our students experience the enriching opportunity of attending academic summer school programs at leading colleges and universities.

Thank you for donating.

Connie - Thank you for all that you do in supporting MMLA (I miss all of you so much!) and running the Boston Marathon! Marathon Mondays were the highlight of my college experience in Boston and I wish you the best of luck! 4 years ago
