ORGANIZER: PEACE AND SPORT
EVENT DATE: Nov 03, 2013
ZERO TO 26.2 IN 26 DAYS!
I'm raising money via Peace & Sport USA for Classroom Champions, a P&S USA sponsored program. Classroom Champions provides technology, global teacher/student networks, and world class athlete mentors to underserved classrooms in order to improve students' perseverance, goal setting, digital literacy, and community-building skills. This increases moral, self-esteem, and classroom/community engagement while reducing disruptive challenges such as bullying.
I will be personally matching every dollar you contribute. Please help me support the 1500+ students who will take part in this year's program!
ABOUT PEACE AND SPORT:
For the third year running, Peace and Sport will participate in the ING New York City Marathon on November 3, 2013 as an official charity.
Since our first participation in 2011, the runners from Team Peace and Sport raised more than $100,000.00 for our projects in the field.
These funds were used to implement Peace through Sport projects in Haiti, East Timor, Republic of Congo, Burundi, Colombia, Kenya, Ivory Coast and Israel-Palestine.
