BENEFITING: PHILADELPHIA YOUTH FOR CHANGE
EVENT DATE: Dec 09, 2012
Most of you know that I ran 5k in 2010 a 10k in 2011 and now it is 2012 and I am go to run The Holiday Half Marathon in Pomona. Last year I was able to raise $140 to provide African kids with nets that will prevent them from getting Malaria. This year I want to raise $1000 for Philadelphia Youth for Change.
This is where the $1000 will go
• Netbook computer upon enrollment
• Books and school supplies at the start of each session
• Ongoing need-based grants to cover living expenses, including housing, food, childcare, and medical expenses
• Monthly study skill and personal development trainings
These kids are very poor and many have been incarcerated however instead of giving them a handout this program teaches them a trade.
