BENEFITING: STAR KIDS SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

EVENT: 2013 Boston Marathon

EVENT DATE: Apr 15, 2013

Lizzie Benestad

THE STORY:

From the first day that I learned about this program founded by Tim Flanigan, I have been so impressed with its mission and I have wanted to contribute in some way.  The value of a good education has always been of the utmost importance in my family.  I was blessed with excellent educational experiences, and I hope to provide a local child with a similar opportunity.  Please consider helping me sponsor a student during this holiday season.

The mission of the Star Kids Scholarship Program is to provide educational opportunities in the form of tuition aid to effective non-public schools, uniforms, after-school and summer programs, tutoring and mentoring for those high risk, low-income children who have a parent with a history of incarceration and/or substance abuse. Children are typically enrolled in the program between kindergarten and grade 4.
Star Kids' goal for each child is to graduate from high school. By completing high school and hopefully going on to higher education, these children will have a greater chance of breaking the intergenerational cycle of poverty, drug use, disease, depression and violence. Star Kids serves children from the following communities:
Newport County, Rhode Island
Fall River, Massachusetts
New Bedford, Massachusetts.
$3,500 will sponsor a child to attend a Catholic or independent school.
