Hello good people,
It's been a few years, so it's time to get out there and raise some money for my favorite charity again! If you skip to the bottom you can read all about the worthy cause I am running for and for which I will thank you in advance for donating. This charity is of particular importance to me as the money I raise from running this race directly benefits the students of the Joseph Lee School where I teach. So please, open up your hearts, wallets, purse strings, pocket books or whatever else you may keep your money in and generously donate (any amount!) to support the amazing students at the Lee School and the other schools supported by DFSI. And please spread the word to your friends and family. The more people on board, the easier it will be to reach my fundraising goal of $3,000, and the more motivated it will get me to hit the roads to accomplish my marathon goal of sub 4 hours. Thanks again!
The Dorchester FAMILY School Initiative (DFSI) helps to provide health, social support and enrichment services for children attending our partner schools: Joseph Lee School, Lee Academy and Oliver W. Holmes elementary schools. Our goal is to support before-school and after-school programming, coordinate social and emotional services within schools, expose the children to positive youth development activities that will help them improve their health and wellnes and provide enrichment activities that engage students in art, music, drama, and sports. We connect families with community programs and service. Additionally, we support teachers and the schools to strengthen math and reading skills.
