THE STORY:

Dear all,

I am writing to ask for your support this fall as I run the NYC Marathon for Read Ahead, a nonprofit education organization based in NYC! (message from them below) As many of you know, I have dedicated my career to education and feel so fortunate to be able to run for an organization that is committed to improving opportunities for kids through mentoring and reading. As my own daughter who loves to read told me, "you got the best team!" Indeed! I am so glad to be running with this terrific organization!

On the personal front, I will be running with my daughter, Sarah, pictured with me here before a grueling race this past summer! Although we won't be able to run side by side this time, she and I will be there this November, along with so many others who have trained hard and are running with support from loved ones and wonderful supporters like you. We all thank you, as do the children, teachers, and staff of Read Ahead!

Thank you, thank you!

Monica Higgins

 

From Read Ahead:

Read Ahead ignites a love of reading in young students through mentoring, improving their confidence as well as their odds of success in school and life. Since 1991, Read Ahead (formerly know as Everybody Wins! New York) has partnered volunteer mentors with elementary school students throughout New York City for one-on-one lunchtime reading-based mentoring sessions. Through the over 15,000 lunch hours spent annually in the program, our students develop confidence and other social and emotional skills crucial for success.
