For more than 35 years, the Fulfillment Fund has been dedicated to providing first-generation, low-income students in Los Angeles with the support necessary to graduate from high school, earn a college degree and become productive and successful members of society.
Through classroom instruction, college counseling, mentoring and scholarships, the Fund transforms the lives of students. Whereas only 54% of high school graduates from low-income communities enroll in college nationally, 94% of Fulfillment Fund high school graduates planned to enroll in college last fall.
We are asking each of our runners to raise a minimum of $800. Proceeds will support Fulfillment Fund programs and scholarships.
