Please help us stop the spread of HIV and AIDS by donating to the Grassroot Soccer Marathon Team!
This will be Sara's first marathon (yikes!) and Melissa's second (she qualified for Boston in her first, with a time of 3:24!). Melissa spent a year in South Africa working for Grassroot Soccer from 2008 - 2009. It was one of the most inspiring experiences of her life and we are both so excited to raise money for this kick-ass organization.
