BENEFITING: Change the World RVA
EVENT DATE: Nov 12, 2016
Help us Change the World at the Anthem Richmond Marathon! Please support me in my first marathon to support Change the World RVA! During the 2014-2015 academic year, there were 1,800 homeless students in the Richmond Public Schools. Imagine how difficult it would be to study, take tests, and pay attention in class if you hadn’t slept well and were worried about where you were going to sleep each night. Change the World RVA helps our students succeed in high school, college, and in life. We: * Provide each student with a network of caring adults; * Help with obtaining safe and stable housing, including host families; * Offer a popular and engaging weekly after school program; * Support a peer group, other students who face the same struggles and dreams of success; * Sponsor our now legendary Birthday Card Brigade; * Organize field trips and college visits; * Provide a student-run food pantry & clothing closet; * Provide emergency transportation, bus passes, cell phones; * Facilitate bridges to existing services (housing, health care, job training); and * Offer support through the college years. We stick with our students even after they turn 18 and graduate from high school.
