EVENT DATE: Apr 03, 2016

THE STORY:

On April 3rd I will join the masses to take on the hills of San Francisco in the Rock & Roll half marathon. I'd like your help to run this race in support of the SportsChallenge Class of 2016!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Most things in life I find confusing, but there is one point on which I have been entirely clear for some time now. Good education is needed, it is hard to find and it is expensive to deliver.  

In my 2 years working for SportsChallenge, my belief that we are educating students well has grown. With athletics as our venue, we successfully teach students an often discussed but rarely taught subject, leadership.

The Summer Leadership Academy, our keystone program, is a gem. A small utopia where the right blend of people, culture and metholodogy combine to actually positively change the course of lives.   

In my 2 years, as my belief has grown, the cost of our facilities has grown too, by 6 times to be exact. It is an increase that threatens the depth of the financial aid that we can offer to deserving student-athletes. It is a dilmena that makes me at once furious and heartbroken. I don't want our cost increases to mean a lack of access. 

We are approaching this dilmena with a myriad of solutions: potential corporate sponsorships, increased fee-for-service work, and by tightening our belts elsewhere. Today I also seek your help to navigate this dilmena. Please consider a donation to my Run for the Class of 2016 so that we can continue to make the SportsChallenge experience accessible to all.  

Here's to sport, to leadership and the Class of 2016! Thank you for your consideration!
