BENEFITING: GRASSROOT SOCCER
ORGANIZER: GRASSROOT SOCCER
I am so excited to be running the marathon on behalf of the Grassroot Soccer team this year! GRS is an amazing organization that is making a huge difference in the lives of youth in Africa.
This will be my second marathon. I ran DC in 2002 and swore to anyone who would listen that I would never do anything so crazy again. Yet, this is such a terrific cause that here I am!
Please join me in supporting this great group! Some details on GRS below. Wait until you read about all their terrific work...
Thanks so much for your support!!
About Grassroot Soccer:
The third Grassroot Soccer NYC Marathon Team is giving HIV the Red Card:
26 miles. 50 runners. $200k. 8,000 Lives.
We have the best marathon team out there- not only are they wicked fast and good looking- they're saving lives with every step! And we are honored that they are running for Grassroot Soccer.
Each day more than 7,000 people die of AIDS, and it is the leading cause of death of women globally.
At Grassroot Soccer, we see a world mobilized through soccer to create an AIDS-free generation. Our mission is to educate, inspire and mobilize youth to stop the spread of HIV. By 2014, GRS plans to reach 1 million youth with life-saving education. To date, we've graduated 393,225 girls and boys from our programs globally.
To achieve our mission, we continuously improve our innovative HIV prevention and life-skills curriculum, share our program and concept effectively, and utilize the popularity of soccer to increase our impact.
