THE STORY:

Dear Friends & Family,

I've decided, once again, to arrive in the town of Hopkinton in the early morning hours of April 15th for a chance to run in the 117th Boston Marathon. I had an amazing experience last year and was truly touched by all the support I received that helped me reach the finish line!

This year I will run the 2013 Boston Marathon in an effort to raise money and awareness for Boston Partners in Education. My father, Bill Berman, served on the Board of this phenomenal organization for over 20 years and would still be involved if not for his health challenges related to Parkinson’s disease. When I told my father of my desire to run the Boston Marathon in support of Boston Partners he was ecstatic that I'd be running to support a cause near to our family's hearts for a second year in a row. When I asked my father what attracted him to Boston Partners, he simply replied:

“Boston Partners directly helps children succeed in life, and there is nothing more important than helping our children grow and flourish".....(Bill Berman, Board Member 1988-2010)

I have been lucky enough to have attended numerous Boston Partners events to hear directly from students who have improved their school performance and long term success as result of the 1 on 1 tutoring they received. I greatly appreciate any donation that you can make to help me reach my goal of $5,000.

Thank You!!

Benton

BOSTON PARTNERS IN EDUCATION INC:

Founded in 1966, Boston Partners in Education enhances the academic achievement and nurtures the personal growth of Boston's public school students by providing them with focused, individualized in-school volunteer support.

Boston Partners in Education has tutored and mentored K-12 students in the Boston Public Schools for over 45 years. Our trained volunteers, who serve as academic mentors, help students gain the skills, self-confidence, and the motivation they need to succeed in school and in life.

We are working to close the achievement gap. Students with academic mentors improve their scores on Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS) exams, develop a love for reading and math, and, most importantly, stay in school and graduate!

Teachers and mentors report that students receiving extra attention during the school day show an increased interest in school, improved academic performance in math and literacy, enhanced self-esteem, and a better work ethic.

Boston Partners in Education’s unique model of recruiting, screening, training, matching, and supporting academic mentors who not only tutor, but also build a bond with their students over time, has a proven track record of success.

During the 2011-2012 academic years, we matched 3,729 students in 64 schools throughout the city with 655 volunteers.
