Alex Levie runs the 2019 Boston Marathon to Support UOD
I deeply agree with UOD’s mission to educate communities and children in school about the importance of accepting everyone. Teaching children to value differences in the school setting is extremely important in creating a warm and welcoming environment for everyone. This program allows for a better learning environment, as well as a healthy social environment. I personally want to help educate the community and raise awareness for Understanding Our Differences (UOD) so no one is bullied for being different. Everyone has a difference and should be celebrated and respected, creating safe and respectful communities. I believe education is a driver for change, especially around inclusion, which makes the world a safer and all around better place."
