BENEFITING: I Have A Dream Foundation - New York
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
I am running the NYC Marathon this year, and a lot of friends have asked how they could help. I checked and while I can't outsource any miles, I can have you support one of my favorite organizations, the “I Have A Dream” Foundation (IHDF). I've had the privilege of being involved with this amazing organization whose mission is to motivate and empower children living in low-income communities to reach their educational and career potential by providing a long-term program of academic support, mentoring, enrichment, and tuition assistance and support for higher education. IHDF-NY works closely with all Dreamers, providing a rigorous, year-round program that enhances academic performance with tutoring and mentoring. We also provide dynamic experiences that boost Dreamers’ confidence, build character, and engage them in a wide variety of subjects, from the arts to physical fitness to community service and internships. Additionally, IHDF-NY provides guaranteed tuition assistance for higher education to any Dreamer who graduates from high school. All of these initiatives help our Dreamers break the cycle of poverty and be fully prepared for a promising career and future.
Thank you for your support!
