THE STORY:

Hi All, 

I am running the 2013 Boston Marathon to support America SCORES Boston - a non-profit organization that combines soccer, poetry, and service for kids in Boston. So as I train to run the the historic race, I will also be providing at-risk students with the opportunity to lead healthy lives in a team environment, improve their writing skills, and build self-confidence by designing community service projects.

My goal is to raise a minimun of 5,000 dollars all of which will go directly to America SCORES Boston. 

So what does America SCORES actually do?

America SCORES Boston innovatively combines soccer leagues,creative writing workshops, and service projects into a single after-school program for 3rd-8th grade students in the Boston Public Schools (BPS).By partnering with BPS schools, America SCORES Boston reaches over 1,000 Boston youth every year, with the mission to inspire students to lead healthy lives, be engaged students, and have the confidence and character to make a difference in the world.

 

Divided into a fall and spring season during the academic year, 3rd-8th grade Boston Public School students play, write, and achieve in our multifaceted after-school program.  

Soccer: Our student athletes participate in team trainings and games both in the fall and spring seasons, honing their individual skills while learning the importance of staying fit and working together.  

Creative Writing & Performance: Throughout the fall, our student-athletes learn to write and express themselves through poetry and songwriting workshops. At the end of the season, each SCORES student becomes a published author and an experienced spoken word performer.  

Community Service Projects: Each spring, our student-athletes create their own community service projects to improve their school and local neighborhood. Incorporating team work and creative thinking, SCORES students discover through these projects that they have the power to make a difference.  

Off-Season Programs: During the summer and winter months, America SCORES Boston provides additional enrichment activities that include tutoring, songwriting workshops, open gyms, and a summer camp.  

America SCORES Boston reaches an ethnically diverse  and at-risk student population throughout the city  of Boston.  As part of the SCORES Program, students  achieve tremendous gains:  

Student-Athlete Outcomes:

• 61% increase in cardiovascular capacity

• 22% increase in reading confidence 

• 96% of our student-athletes read more

• 91% of participants increase effort at school  

I am honored to be given this opportunity to raise funds and awareness for such a worthy cause. I appreciate any and all support that you can offer. 

Thanks so much,
Dave
