BENEFITING: AMERICA SCORES NY
Note: ALL donations go to the kids (not to me)!
Taking a stab at my first half marathon, but more importantly hoping to raise money for a cause I'm passionate about. Don't typically like asking for money, but I've been volunteering with America Scores and have seen first hand that any amount of money would be greatly appreciated. It will go to a great cause - and help put a smile on a kid who needs that smile! Thanks so much for your support!!!!!!
Want to learn more about SCORES? Soccer and poetry is not a typical pair, but for America SCORES New York poet-athletes, the combination allows for creativity, self-expression and leadership opportunities on the field, in the classroom and the community. We impact 270 students at 8 public schools in Harlem and Washington Heights through free, year-round after-school programming, consisting of:
Soccer – School soccer teams create a sense of belonging and an opportunity to be physically active 4-5 hours per week.
Literacy – At weekly writing workshops, our poet-athletes develop literacy skills, practice self-expression and produce original works of poetry.
Community – Regular soccer games, poetry slams and service projects celebrate student achievement and build community.
