EVENT: 2015 Shamrock Shuffle 8K
For the second year in a row, I will be running the Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle 8K on behalf of Mikva Challenge. This year, all the money raised will be going toward the Summer Fellows program, which is a program I participated in 12 years ago and is a program that changed my life.
After graduating from Whitney Young High School, I was a Mikva Challenge Summer Fellow and was placed at the Cook County State's Attorney's Office, Juvenile Justice Division. There, my supervisor became my mentor, and he assigned me work that was typically assigned to law students. It was this internship that led me to my calling - the law - and led me to the career that I now enjoy.
Please help me give a Chicago high school student a chance at a potentially life-changing summer internship. Because of people at Mikva and their supporters, I am where I am today, and your donation can make a difference.
