Thank you for taking the time to visit my Crowdrise page!
I am Maria Fernandez and I am honored to be running the 2019 Boston Marathon on behalf of Framingham Adult ESL PLus.
I am originally from Spain, and I have spent three years living and working in the United States. I know first hand how hard it is to learn English as a Second Language, and how important it is to learn the language to be successful in this country.
I have great respect for Framingham ESL group and the work they do, and I invite you to join me in raising money for their organization.
Here is more information about the work they do!
Framingham Adult ESL Plus
The MetroWest ESL Fund raises money for Framingham Adult ESL Plus. FAESL+ offers free ESL, high school equivalency, and Citizenship classes to area residents. We currently have over 800 students from ages 17-79. The students come from many cultures and faiths, all working together towards the same goal- to learn the language and math skills needed to help build their lives in the U.S. Framingham.
The demand for ESL classes is huge: the last time the program had registration for ESL, they had less than 100 available spaces, and more than 800 people showed up hoping to register. The money raised through this campaign will help us take people off of the waiting list, and help them meet their goals. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
