EVENT: Honda LA Marathon 2012
EVENT DATE: Mar 18, 2012
Hi everyone!On March 18th I will be running the 2012 L.A. Marathon as a relay race with a colleague on behalf of the Fulfillment Fund – an amazing nonprofit that I joined up with here in Los Angeles.
It's been great fun to get back into racing, and particularly doing so knowing that I am training for a great organization. If you can and would like to - but no pressure - please consider donating to my fundraising page at:
The Fulfillment Fund (www.fulfillment.org) is a college access organization that for over 30 years has provided underserved, low-income students in Los Angeles with the support they need to graduate high school, earn a college degree and become productive and successful members of the community. The Fulfillment Fund offers a variety of services including:
· classroom instruction
· college counseling
· one-on-one mentoring
· college scholarships
· internship services
The Fulfillment Fund truly does transform the lives of the students they serve. Whereas the overall high school graduation rate among LAUSD (Los Angeles Unified School District) students is only 55 percent, Fulfillment Fund students graduate high school at a rate of more than 91 percent, and of those who graduate, 93 percent go on to college.
