BENEFITING: CIRCLE DE LUZ INC
Its that time of year again! I have fundraised or run this race for the 4 years that Circle de Luz has been a part of it. Ray and I will run this year with our little tribe that includes Cris & Manny. Every year I make a plea to all of you to support Circle de Luz, it is a cause near and dear to my heart.
Circle de Luz is a nonprofit organization with a mission to radically empower young Latinas by supporting and inspiring them in the pursuit of their possibilities through extensive mentoring, programming, and scholarship funds for further education.
Latina's are one of the most overlooked demographics in this country.
Our Guiding Beliefs
- Every child deserves access to education and the opportunity to pursue her potential.
- Latinas face numerous unique challenges that deserve our communities attention.
- Education is fundamental to personal success.
- Compassionate mentoring facilitates possibility & empowerment.
- Exposure to opportunity matters.
- Cultivating a community of leadership and service creates engaged citizens of the world.
- Supporting our Hijas means embracing and being accessible to their families.
- Measuring impact & evaluating our processes is essential to our success.
This is what our organization does and how we empower each and every one of our girls through access to education and opportunity. Please join me in supporting this cause by contributing to this run and supporting these amazing young women.
