THE STORY:

So I am running my first marathon. Why? Not sure. Seemed like a good idea at the time I signed up. That time came back in April, after a late-night soccer game with Grassroot Soccer founder Ethan Zohn. He's an old friend, and I've been supporting his organization for years, either through the K+S Soccer Film Festival or by showing up to drink martinis at his occasional fancy cocktail fundraisers.

But this year, I decided to support GRS in a more personal -- and healthy way -- running. And I want you to help me help GRS.

Read the GRS story below and please donate to my efforts in helping Ethan and GRS fight HIV and AIDS.

Thanks. I'll see you at the finish line. I hope.

 

The 3rd Grassroot Soccer NYC Marathon Team

26 Miles. 65 Runners. $200,000 Raised. 8,000 Lives Saved.

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 to the extent allowed by law.

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.

A HUGE thanks to all our donors and partners, including Nike, Muscle Milk, and SOYJOY!
