WHO WE ARE:

The mission of The Grassroot Project (TGP) is to use sports to educate at-risk youth in Washington D.C. about ­HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention. The Grassroot Project engages at-risk youth in Washington D.C. by partnering with athletes from Georgetown University, George Washington University, Howard University, Maryland University and other DC area universities. The student athletes address the prevention of HIV/AIDS through an interactive curriculum of over 15 games and activities that encourage participatory learning of basic HIV prevention information, stigma, and discrimination.  By using the vehicle of sport to influence social change, the programs allow kids to share their feelings and beliefs, increase knowledge, and develop healthy attitudes and behaviors.

WHAT YOU CAN DO:

Run with us towards the day of an HIV/AIDS free generation. Team Grassroot is TGP’s full and half marathon program. Join us in the nation’s capital on March 14th, 2015, for Rock ‘n’ Roll DC. Included in your $500.00 fundraising commitment are prizes, a TGP swag, exclusive training plans by a certified run coach, and group workouts with other TGP athletes. Feel free to email our executive director Ryan with any questions at ryan@grassrootproject.org.
