THE STORY:

Michael May wrote -

I am running the marathon for my 19th  straight year. 

It only makes sense to try to raise some money for a great cause and I again have chosen Success Academies (http://successacademies.org/).

Success Academies builds charter schools in the underprivileged areas in New York City.  Your donation pays to build the schools (22 to date).  Once built, the schools are self-sustaining as they run at a discount to NY City Public Schools.

Success Academy schools are open to all children including those with special needs and English language learners through a random lottery.  Success Academy often educates in the same building as existing public schools.           The results are amazing for:

  • 5 of the top 25 NYC schools are Success Academies in Bed-Stuy, Harlem, and the Bronx
  • Students are 3 years ahead in education | 1.5 years better than NYC gifted and talented which only accepts high-aptitude children
  • 30% lower attrition rate than public schools
  • 90%+ of students are above their grade level in math and English

I am just starting today but hope to raise a bunch of money in a very short period of time.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Best,

Michael May
