BENEFITING: STUDENTS SHOULDER TO SHOULDER
EVENT: San Francisco Marathon 2014
EVENT DATE: Jul 27, 2014
Running for Students Shoulder-to-Shoulder:
Students Shoulder-to-Shoulder is founded on a simple concept: for the next generation of secondary school students to be effective global citizens, they need direct experience engaging their intellects, curiosity, and senses of obligation by working with organizations that are in the field, addressing fundamental issues related to endemic poverty. Guided by bright, globally-minded course instructors, we believe that these experiences are inherently creative, energetic, idealistic, and bold enough to generate worldviews shaped by universal values of justice, responsibility, and compassion. Our purpose remains to compel students from around the world toward a clear, hope-inspired vision of how to confront what we call the paralysis of enormity – the futile feeling of looking at a global challenge that seems too big and too entrenched to even approach.
