The Arthur Ashe Learning Center (AALC) is thrilled to field an amazing team of runners for the 2012 New York City Marathon! It’s our first year in the marathon, and we hope to make it a big success. Any support you can give to our ‘AALC Marathoners’ will help us bring Arthur Ashe’s inspiring life and legacy to people - especially young people – across the nation and around the world. Your sponsorship will directly support worthy initiatives like the new Arthur Ashe Learning Center Mobile Tour, which will go directly into underserved and under represented communities bringing an exemplary role model and inspiring message to those who stand to benefit from them most.
Known internationally as a champion both on and off the court, tennis player and humanitarian Arthur Ashe was raised in the segregated South. As a result, in addition to winning the US Open and Wimbledon, he was equally dedicated to fighting for social justice and addressing issues concerning youth, education and health. The Arthur Ashe Learning Center works to share Arthur’s story and commitment to good works as a source of education and inspiration for individuals – especially impressionable young people – fostering confidence, commitment to positive change, and empowerment. Please join our team by contributing to one of our runners or the whole team by clicking the "Donate" button to the right. Any contribution is both helpful and appreciated. Thank you for your support!
