Hello I am Raynard carter a 2017 student athlete graduate of woodrow wilson high school.Running in this marathon has been a goal of mine for two years and my prayers have been answered this year I have been grated the privilege to run in the UNITED STATES MARINE CORPS MARATHON. I will be running with team LAYC in the race. LAYC is a very special group of people. They have helped thru my years of high school with anything fromantic homework to college applications college essays. Even if I was just feeling down and needed a place to go the doors were all ways open to me. The money that I raise thru this race will go to LAYC in order to help with the budget cuts and other financial strains the program faces. I cannot stress how much this program has done for me so please donate.
