On March 17th, I will be running in the LA Half Marathon Charity Relay with my friend Kate Seymour in order to raise money for the Junior League of Los Angeles. The funds raised will go toward improving childhood education in Los Angeles. The JLLA creates projects for our non-profit partners in the community. We help fill in the gaps for our partners with our time as well as raising funds.
An example of this is the JLLA "Discover You" arts education program for the Mar Vista Family Center. Last year I had the privilege of serving on this project. This program is directed towards pre-teen youth, aged 9-12. The arts education program is comprised of creative and performing arts workshops focused on improving the creativity and self-confidence of pre-teens. Our partner, the Mar Vista Family Center (MVFC) was founded in 1977 as a preschool for low-income families that aimed to engage parents as partners in the education of their children. MVFC's long-term involvement with entire families has improved family functioning, decreased domestic violence and improved youths' academic successes and rates of attendance at institutes of higher education.
I am asking friends and family to consider sponsoring me for this event. I would greatly appreciate your support by making a donation. Your donation is 100% tax deductible.
