BENEFITING: The Meadows School

EVENT DATE: Nov 19, 2016

Jeremy Gregersen

THE STORY:

The Meadows School, where I happen to work as Head of School, is the finest educational institution of its kind in the region. We are a preK-12, independent, co-educational college preparatory school that seeks to, among other things, instill a lifelong love of learning in our students while preparing them for higher academic pursuits. Another central tenet of our mission, however, is to teach students that a great education carries with it the responsibility to give back to one's community. I'm therefore practicing what I preach. I'm an avid runner who has found himself drawn more and more to trail running over longer distances. I have completed 4 marathons, and never did I want to continue running after completing the requisite 26.2 miles, so my proposal sounds a little crazy even to me. To wit: I plan to run the Dead Horse Ultra 50k in Moab, Utah on November 19, 2016. That's 50 kilometers, which means right around 31.5 miles across the beautiful desert of southern Utah. Why am I doing this? Because I believe in the mission of my school, and I want to be able to deliver that mission to more able and ambitious students regardless of their parents' ability to pay tuition. Every dollar I raise will go toward an endowed scholarship fund, meaning it will generate income given out annually to deserving students. Last year, The Meadows School gave out well over a million dollars in need-based financial aid, and I'd like to see that number continue to rise. Please support me in making a world-class education available to even more students!!
