This is my 5th and will likely be my final marathon, so help me make it a worthwhile one. I figure you may have some questions about why you should donate, so I will attempt to answer them below.

Q: Is GrassRoots soccer a reputable organization? 

A: Yes! It has a 4-star Charity Navigator rating

Q: Why GrassRoots soccer?

A: I am a passionate soccer supporter and believe in the power it has to change young people's lives. I have volunteered for a previous fundraiser and came away highly impressed with their passion and professionalism.

Q: Are we just paying for your free entry to the marathon?

A: No, I was already accepted to run the marathon via lottery before I decided to fundraise for GrassRoots soccer.

Q: Are you going to win the marathon?

A: No.


Please feel free to ask anymore questions to me directly at if you want to learn more about the organization or me.
