THE STORY:

Ben's Lighthouse wrote -

Ben’s Lighthouse fosters all children’s potential to build a more compassionate and connected world. Children become architects of a changed society by practicing empathy, self awareness and volunteerism. Each child’s contribution, small or large, is a benefit to self and society.

Jessica was born and raised in Newtown, and currently resides in Manhattan.  She has been an elementary teacher for 10 years, and now teaches Spanish in Kindergarten, Third & Fourth Grade at Trinity School in New York.  Running a marathon has always been on her bucket list, and when she had the opportunity to run the New York Marathon, it was too exciting to pass up.  After searching for a meaningful cause to raise money for, her sister, Kelly Paredes, suggested  Ben's Lighthouse.  Jessica's connection to Newtown as her hometown and support of her sister's endeavor as the new Program Manager drew her to this organization.  The mission of Ben's Lighthouse to help build a more compassionate and connected world is very important to her both as a teacher and community member.  She hopes that this wonderful goal will be achieved as the families of Newtown continue to rebuild their spirit, strengthen their support system, and look forward to positive change.
