BENEFITING: GRASSROOT SOCCER
ORGANIZER: GRASSROOT SOCCER
Thank you for visiting my Team Grassroot Soccer NYC Marathon site!
Sandy and I are extremely excited to be taking part in this wonderful event. One of the things we decided while running the Amazing Race, was to reach out and help the youth and underpriveleged in this world as much as we could. Meeting Ethan Zohn on the race led us to Grassroots and hopefully this will lead to your inspiration to also go out and spend some time helping the less fortunate children of the world. Please help us in our goal of raising $3k for this charity.
If you choose to hit the orange little donate button on this page, just know that all of your donation, no matter how small will go towards this great cause.
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.
