BENEFITING: Rockwood Leadership Institute
EVENT DATE: Mar 23, 2014
A team of staff from Rockwood Leadership Institute (TC, Stacy, Pia, Maddie, Tony and Akaya) are running in the Oakland Running Festival on March 23rd to raise $5,000 in scholarship funds for Oakland leaders from grassroots organizations to go through Rockwood’s Art of Leadership program. We invite you to make a donation to support Oakland’s social change leaders’ learning skills that will sustain them through a lifetime of activism.
We love that Rockwood has its home in Oakland where we get to run into our alums on the street, in coffee shops, and at the gym. We are deeply invested in our Oakland community and now we want to raise money specifically to support local Oakland leaders from small organizations to participate in our Art of Leadership training.
Not only do we work at Rockwood Leadership Institute, but we are also part of a national network of leaders who are committed to changing the way change is done through personal sustainability, resilience and interconnected movements. We know our work makes a difference. People who have been through Rockwood’s programs often say, “Rockwood changed my life!”
No donation is too small; everything helps. Knowing you are supporting us will be just what Team Rockwood needs to keep training every week, and, on the day of the race, to cross that finish line (TC, Stacy, Pia and Maddie will run in the Oakland Marathon Relay, and Akaya will walk the 5K).
