THE STORY:

Hi All,

I have worked for Grassroot Soccer on various projects since 2007. I have worked both in Southern Africa and the USA. While I was in SA in 2007, I was in a bad accident. I wasn't sure I would ever run again, but with the support of the GRS team and the amazing spirit of all the GRS youth around me, I was empowered to stay to work and grow stronger than ever before. Now, I stand here today ready to run my first marathon and I couldn't pick a better reason than for GRS. Grassroot Soccer has the ability to absorb deep into your soul. It is a phenomenal organization, supported by amazing people and doing outstanding and important projects. Please help support my goal of completing my 42km race and help GRS achieve their goal of educating 1,000,000 youth by 2014!

Love,

Brianna

The 3rd Grassroot Soccer NYC Marathon Team: 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.

Grassroot Soccer (GRS) has reached over 400,000 youth with HIV prevention and life skills education, trained 2,500 Skillz coaches, and reached millions more through outreach.  However, there is much more work to be done; each day more than 7,000 people die of AIDS, with more than half of new infections occurring amongst young people.  

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, our goal is to reach 1 million youth with life-saving education. You can help us get there!

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.  Each dollar is put to use in reaching the most at-risk youth in Africa with the best possible prevention education.

You can help by supporting Grassroot Soccer's AWESOME Marathon runners by clicking the DONATE button above. All donations are tax-dedutible.

Make an offline donation by sending a check to Grassroot Soccer PO Box 712 Norwich, VT 05055, please note the runner's name in the memo line.
