I am climbing Mt. Kili to support Read Ahead this May and am asking for your help in reaching my fundraising goal of $19,341- $1 for each foot of Kili’s height to support this wonderful reading-based mentoring program in NYC.
Please visit the website www.readahead.org to learn more about our organization.
Read Ahead is celebrating it’s 25th anniversary the same year I am turning 50. 2016 is a monumental year! Three of my closest friends and I decided to celebrate our half century mark by climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro and raising funds for our favorite charities. As a board member, reading mentor, and passionate supporter, I chose Read Ahead.
Currently, Read Ahead has 1,200 dedicated volunteer mentors serving 1,000 kids in 20 different NYC schools. This valuable program’s mission statement is to “ignite a love of reading in young students through mentoring, improving their confidence as well as their odds for success in school and life.”
Your generosity will help to ensure that Read Ahead continues to provide a valuable service to so many underserved kids throughout NYC.
Thanks in advance for your support and generosity. I look forward to telling you about our journey when we return in early June.
